Cowlitz County (Wash.)--History, Cowlitz Indian Tribe, Washington--History, Historic preservation--Research


WHP2 is a group of five graduate students from Portland State University (PSU) pursuing Master of Urban and Regional Planning degrees. PSU’s program is unique in that it features a client-centered workshop project in place of a final thesis. For our workshop, we spent January through May of 2018 working with our client—the Cowlitz County Historic Preservation Program—to develop a Heritage Plan (Plan). As a relatively new Certified Local Government, they have chosen to be at the forefront of community-led and community-focused historic preservation. This choice brings its own challenges and opportunities and we have explored how they can best accomplish this work.


Client: Cowlitz County Washington

Faculty workshop advisors: Marisa Zapata and Deborah Stein
