  • Abstract:
    Historic Landscapes are our nation’s finger prints of the past. They provide us a glimpse into the way people worked, lived, and admired

    the land. As the earth’s population continues to grow, so does the need for infrastructure improvements such as roadways, transit and

    utilities. More pressure is being applied to these culturally significant resources, potentially altering their historic settings more than ever

    before. Once a historic resource is altered or removed, that glimpse into the past is lost forever. Striking that balance between historic

    preservation and the need for accommodating the growing population through infrastructure improvements can be a challenge. How do

    you preserve, protect and promote our historic landscapes while providing the necessary transportation infrastructure improvements for the

    growing population?

    The Georgia Department of Transportation’s Office of Environmental Services saw a need to evaluate the landscaping that they had

    installed at various historic properties over the years. This landscaping had been installed as mitigation for road projects that had been

    determined to result in adverse effects to properties determined to be eligible for, and listed in, the National Register of Historic Places.

    The Office of Environmental Services seeks to use this evaluation to inform landscaping mitigation going forward.
