The Governor authorized the Task Force to Study the Preservation and Enhancement of Maryland's Heritage Resources in 1998 (Executive Order 01.01.1998.21; Executive Order 01.01.1999.07; Executive Order 01.01.1999.11). Heritage resources are museums, districts, sites, buildings, structures, monuments, or objects significant to the prehistory, history, upland and underwater archeology, architecture, engineering, and culture of Maryland.
The Task Force is to assess the condition of Maryland's heritage resources. It then will evaluate how well they are aided by the private sector, and by assistance programs and tax policies of federal, State and local jurisdictions. The Task Force also will recommend a plan by which to increase private investment in the preservation of heritage resources. In addition, the Task Force will devise strategies to prioritize important needs of the heritage resource community, encourage financial self-sufficiency for heritage resources, and review how State agencies identify and protect historic properties in their care.
On January 1, 2000, the Task Force submitted its preliminary report to the Governor and General Assembly.
