Abstract/ Summary

Historic Preservation Plan for the University of Maine. The plan represents the efforts of University of Maine personnel, including administrators, Facilities Management staff, faculty and students; and consulting architects, historians, and landscape architects, working closely with the CPC (and through representation on the CPC, the CBAC) and the MHPC. The University’s Board of Visitors periodically reviewed the work of the planning team and offered enthusiastic support.

The goals of the Historic Preservation Master Plan are to:
• identify and document historic resources of the core campus of the University of Maine;
• identify more recent buildings and landscapes of the University of Maine that have acquired or are expected to acquire significance in the future;
• determine and document existing conditions of these resources;
• recommend appropriate preservation treatments
and uses for these resources;
• publicize and protect these resources through designation under institutional, local, state and federal historic preservation processes;
• put in place University policies and procedures that will assure adequate protection, maintenance, and appropriate use of these resources;
• use University resources to educate the University community about the importance and value of campus historic resources;
• protect the historic resources of the University in order to maintain strong ties between the institution and its alumni family; and
• provide campus planners with specific and practical information to assist them with the day-to-day management of the physical plant and with long-range development decisions.
