The implementation of various preservation processes in two historical districts, the Sanxia Minquan District and the Daxi Heping District, yielded different results. In Daxi, old industries and neighborhood networks still exist, whereas in Sanxia, they have disappeared behind the formation of a new commercial community primarily focused on historical tourism. These results were influenced by the promotion and long-term implementation of government policies, the actions of architecture and urban planning professionals, and the formation of historical preservation organizations. Crucial factors for maintaining local characteristics when preserving historical districts are constant governmental investment in historical preservation and district revitalization programs, professional facilitation and assistance in the operation of community organizations, and locally operated community organizations that can propose and execute district preservation and revitalization projects.
