Old Salem must play a key role in this process given its credibility as a historic voice in the region. A high-functioning and credible historic resource commission will always be an important partner to the community in these endeavors. Focus on existing and well-accepted historic districts and sites as a priority for appropriate governance.

Only truly special structures should be protected.
Local older neighborhoods, preservation non-profit (Preserve Historic Forsyth), HRC, developers with rehab experience, prioritize based on level of significance and uniquenessin general support by proactive support of older areas
The partners for preservation should be between the public and private sectors and should definitely include the residents of historic districts! Prioritization should be considered on age and uniqueness of the structures. Age/uniqueness - newer or less unique buildings (first/higher)
You need organizations & groups who actively advocate for historic preservation. The City planning department, historic preservation commission, & interested individuals need to come together to help protect & preserve ALL historic/old sites. Prioritize by asking community members what matters most to them, as well as basing priority on the historic significance of the building.
There should be a partnership with agencies that represent and serve the elderly. This population has the most primary recollection of history and it could let our aging population know that we value their experiences and input. Partnerships with local colleges/universities could lend an academic voice to our presentation too.
Community knowledge & support.I believe that Historic areas/sites need to be a main focus for protection
National organization experts should work with our local HRC to ensure that all possible concepts are included in the master plan
Preserve all existing rural land.
Local utilities and transportation folks should be included as historical and community identity sites have been bulldozed which allowed more recent developments.
