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, which provides both opportunities and challenges as communities grow and change.
How can planners help their communities and clients identify, protect, and enhance these places? This one-day workshop, sponsored by the Pennsylvania State Historic Preservation Office (PA SHPO) and Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC), will familiarize county, municipal, and consulting planners with core historic preservation programs and concepts and help participants understand how to effectively integrate these ideas into planning processes, documents, and practice.
- Integrating historic preservation into planning;
- Key players, policies, and programs;
- Identifying and designating historic resources;
- Protecting and regulating historic resources; and
- Incentives and tools for historic preservation.
Five hours of AICP Certification Maintenance (CM) credits available.
Registration is required by Friday, March 8 . The $40 registration fee includes the one-day workshop, lunch, and break refreshments. Doors open at 8:30 AM and the workshop begins at 9:00 and runs through 3:15 PM.
Hosted at: Whitemarsh Township Building Lafayette Hill, Montgomery County, PA
