Management Plans

Since LHV’s inception in 1991, several plans have been prepared to guide the heritage area’s development and plan of work. LHV’s “Environmental Impact Study and Management Action Plan” of 2004, a requirement for federal designation, builds on several of these plans, and it includes both an Interpretive Plan and an Education Plan. LHV’s Management Action Plan identifies important resources and the means to protect them. It also recommends the appropriate development and use of designated sites.
