Adams County and the preservation commission were designated a certified local government by the National Park Service (NPS) in December 1989. Preservation through partnership is the goal of the CLG program. Local, state and federal governments work together in the federal preservation program to help communities save the irreplaceable historic character of places. Through the certification process, communities make a local commitment to historic preservation. This commitment is key to America’s ability to preserve, protect and increase awareness of our unique cultural heritage found in the built environment across the country.
Jointly administered by the NPS and the State Historic Preservation Offices, each local community works through a certification process to become recognized as a CLG. Once certified, CLG’s become an active partner in the Federal Historic Preservation Program. Each community gains access to benefits of the program and agrees to follow required federal and state requirements. Community certification opens doors to funding, technical assistance and other preservation successes.
