Preservation in Practice: A Primer for Historic Preservation Commissions and Planners

1-day workshop

This one-day workshop sponsored by the Mid-Atlantic Regional Center for the Humanities at Rutgers University-Camden is open to all preservationists, but specifically geared toward those serving on a local commission. This program is designed to benefit both new and experienced commission members as well as being relevant for planning and zoning board members and elected officials. The course provides an in-depth examination of current topics and issues relevant to integrating preservation into community planning and zoning. Focus will be on legal parameters for implementing a commission, understanding your ordinance, and conducting an effective public meeting. Participants are asked to send their ‘current hot topics’ to the instructor in advance of the workshop.
