A core element of ARG’s practice is preservation planning. ARG’s Planning and History Group is comprised of planners, historians, and architects that meet The Secretary of the Interior’s Standards professional qualifications. The group has varied interests and areas of specialization in the fields of history, architectural history, historic preservation, cultural resources management, city planning, architecture, environmental review, and urban design.

The breadth of professional experience among the group provides a solid foundation for a variety of private and public planning, research, and design projects with a historic preservation component. The group brings relevant work experience throughout the Western United States including California, Oregon, Washington, Arizona, Hawaii, and Alaska for a wide range of projects in cultural resource planning and preservation planning.
