Juneau is in the midst of updating the City’s Historic Preservation Plan. Currently, we seek community input into the process.

Franklin Street. There will be a discussion on Juneau’s current Preservation Plan and the efforts that are currently being made to update this 20 year old document. If you have ideas to share or would just like to learn more about Juneau’s history please stop by. If you have any questions contact the Juneau Community Development Department at 586-0758.
