Putting the “Public” in Preservation: Case Examples in Community Outreach and Consultation
- Which efforts, including oral history, community mapping, and multimedia exhibits help augment a mitigation plan for Section 106 or CEQA purposes.
- How can a “public historian’s approach” to development in historic neighborhoods or sites prevent costly delays and the threat of legal action for projects.
- What approaches serve as models for communicating with stakeholders, including Native American tribes and other groups that have typically been left out of the preservation process, including low-income communities of color.
- How can professionals learn to “listen” and address community concerns, efficiently, quickly, and equitably while achieving a win-win-win for developer, community resident, and local government.
- Which case examples serve as models for preservationists – models that can help take the house museum outdoors through participatory exhibits, public events, or other people-oriented public history efforts.
