               The Survey is the first act in Preservation Planning. By observing the laws intended to assist citizen

               planning efforts, the Secretary of the Interior Standards, provides a framework  whereby a local

               community may begin  to identify, evaluate, and describe how the restoration of the natural or their

               built environment  will begin. Any effort to provide restoration skipping over this first step, is a

               disservice to those who will call the "restored" environs a part of their home.
