Preservation Pays: How Everyone Benefits
The conference will address economic and community stakeholders involved with architectural preservation at all levels, such as developers; government decision-makers; architects; planners; owners of both large and small rehabilitation projects, including homeowners and small business owners; and community members in historic neighborhoods. Expert speakers will discuss the measurable and catalytic benefits of preservation programs to the city’s economy and quality of life in residential neighborhoods and commercial areas across the city. Case studies of various project types will be critically examined.
As a sequel to Preservation Matters III: The Economics of Authenticity (2014) this conference will sharpen the focus on the practical economics of architectural preservation and delve deeper into the social benefits and strategies for success.
Held during the 50th anniversary year of the National Historic Preservation Act, the conference will also examine the remarkable rise in popularity of architectural preservation and its role in shaping the character and prosperity of America’s historic cities and towns.
The symposium is eligible for 5 accredited hours of CEU.
