ABSTRACT
The article discusses the importance of integrating historic preservation into comprehensive housing plans. Many city planners view historic preservation as ancillary to the process of master planning. They refer to historic districts as overlay zones, meaning that they are not integrated with either the zoning code or the comprehensive plan. This disassociation of planning and historic preservation is inappropriate, and that historic preservation planning should become an integral part of a community's comprehensive plan. Any community with historic properties should base its regulatory power on an established and approved historic preservation plan. Such a plan was created in 1989 for Cherry Hill, a mile-square historic hamlet on the fringe of suburban Detroit, Michigan. Residents of Cherry Hill, whose population was about 150 at the time, were concerned chat development would overtake their community and ruin its rural character. They commissioned a study to protect their hamlet and its surrounding farmland. INSET: Evolution of the Cherry Hill Plan.
