Preservation restrictions are an important tool for municipalities, especially in communities that use Community Preservation Act funds. This workshop, the first of three Leading Locally workshops, covers the development and monitoring of preservation restrictions held at the local level. Hear case-study examples from towns using restrictions and learn about issues related to holding and enforcing preservation restrictions. Gain confidence by learning from professionals who have experience working with these restrictions.
Explore funding mechanisms, building regulations that affect historic properties, and more. Learn from preservation professionals who manage historic sites and make preservation treatment decisions, including reviews of condition assessments, cyclical maintenance, disaster preparedness, and working with contractors.
At this workshop, explore issues in design review and management of local historic districts. Using case-study examples and mock hearings, learn how to address challenging issues in historic districts. Case studies will draw from actual applications; attendees are encouraged to submit examples from their own districts for group discussion and feedback.
Thank you to the Chatham, Sandwich, and Barnstable Historical Commissions for hosting these workshops.
