In spring 2016, Muscatine County Historic Preservation Commission received a Certified Local Government (CLG) grant to complete a Planning for Preservation project for Muscatine County, as summarized in this report. The project has provided the Muscatine County Historic Preservation Commission with an opportunity to identify historic resources in the county for future preservation projects, to identify historic contexts that represent significant aspects of the county's history and development, to discuss how historic preservation can work with economic development programs, and to prioritize future historic preservation projects. Public input was sought initially on future preservation activities during a public presentation and forum in August 2016 and continued to be sought through the presentation of the final report and recommendations in April 2017.
