Central Section Event: Preservation for Planners

September 24, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 3:30 pm

Central Section Event: Preservation for Planners

What to expect:
Older and historic places are an integral part of the identities, cultures, and economies in Pennsylvania’s diverse communities. These places, where we live, work, and play, can often mean different things to different people. This provides both opportunities and challenges as communities grow and change.

How can planners help their communities and clients identify, protect, and enhance historic places? This one-day workshop, co-sponsored by the Pennsylvania State Historic Preservation Office (PA SHPO), will familiarize county, municipal, and consulting planners with core historic preservation programs and concepts. It will also help participants understand how to effectively integrate these ideas into planning processes, documents, and practice.
