Historic Preservation Bootcamp for Local Governments: Essential Training in Three Sessions

Historic Preservation Bootcamp for Local Governments | Sep 22nd to Nov 10th, 2022

This introduction to preservation planning will provide the fundamentals for planners with local governments, as well as cultural heritage, planning, and historic preservation commissioners. Are you or your local government new or relatively new to historic preservation? Would you like to grow your list of designated sites or recognize the areas of your city that deserve historic designation? What are the Secretary of Interior Standards and why do they matter? How do you pay for historic preservation planning and rehabilitation projects and how can the financial incentives help pay for preservation efforts? These questions and many more will be answered in this three-part program (held for three hours each) over three months between September and early November.

Courses are taught by leading planners, architectural historians, consultants, and historic preservation advocates. Full details for each program are listed below. Each part will be held between 9:00 AM and 12:00 PM on Thursdays.
