The Master Plan for Preservation and Scenic Conservation provides the guidelines for those interested and concerned about the historic and scenic attributes which make Guilford the town that it is. It is intended to assist them in working together to supply the leadership and direction Guilford must have to preserve and conserve this priceless heritage while keeping watchful eyes on current trends and development which can have an effect on present and future growth.
The Plan itself takes into consideration our town’s past, its remarkable natural resources, and its current attractiveness as a place to live, to bring up our children, and how careful, thoughtful planning can contribute to blending all of these advantages into a community considered desirable and admired.
It offers guides and direction to accomplish preservation and conservation goals built on education and community effort, funding needs, counsel and regulatory assistance.”
