Mudurnu Cultural Heritage Site Management Plan

The Mudurnu Cultural Heritage Site Management Plan began as a Fall 2013 research project at the Research Center for Anatolian Civilizations (RCAC) of Koç University. Following the completion of the research fellowship, the project continued with the preparation of an official management plan being endorsed in January 2014 by Mudurnu Municipality and Mudurnu District Governorship. In March 2014, funding support was granted by the East Marmara Regional Development Agency (MARKA) and work was begun in March 2014 by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism for the designation of the site management boundary, and the boundary was approved in May. The Management Plan was approved on 9 September 2014 by the Coordination and Regulation Council, which is the approving authority set up under the Mudurnu Site Management Directorate. The plan document can be accessed at the Mudurnu Site Management Directorate website:
