The Planning Department provides preservation planning services to maintain the historic integrity of Delaware County communities.
Delaware County’s Historic Preservation Planners use strategic planning tools to protect the County’s historic, cultural, and archaeological resources. These efforts help enhance the character of our communities and generate economic vitality.
