MHPC / NJHPO Virtual Public Opinion Survey 2023

Questions to the public - This survey is based on identical survey questions (excluding residence) conducted by the  NJHPO and AECOM between December 16, 2021 and remained open until February 15, 2022. Results of that survey can be found in NJ Statewide Historic Preservation Plan 2023 -2028.

The intent of this survey is in part to gain insight into how Milltown residents and those who may be former residents view the Historic Preservation as it relates to the borough.

National Park Service Preservation Briefs

Preservation Briefs provide information on preserving, rehabilitating, and restoring historic buildings. These NPS Publications help historic building owners recognize and resolve common problems prior to work. The briefs are especially useful to Historic Preservation Tax Incentives Program applicants because they recommend methods and approaches for rehabilitating historic buildings that are consistent with their historic character.
