League offers Road Map To Preservation
Program in ______ Outlines Benefits of Historic Preservation
Homeowners, commercial property owners, realtors, contractors, architects, non-profit and community leaders are invited to attend a meeting to learn how preservation plays a key role in economic development, job creation, community revitalization and smart, sustainable growth.
The Preservation League of New York State will present a program on the benefits of historic preservation on Monday, October 29th from 5:00-7:00 p.m. at the Dormann Library (Empire Room), 101 West Morris Street in Bath. Sponsors include the office of the Steuben County Historian, the Bath Historic Commission, the Finger Lakes Tourism Alliance, and Elise Johnson-Schmidt Architects.
The presentation will outline the benefits of historic preservation with a focus on community revitalization through use of historic preservation incentives. Homeowners can find out if they are eligible for tax credits for repairs they make on their houses and municipal and non-profit leaders can learn about the League’s grant programs. The League will share success stories from historic districts around the state.
“The League is the statewide clearinghouse for the latest information, training, and techniques that illustrate the role preservation plays in making our communities better places to live and work,” said Jay DiLorenzo, president of the Preservation League of New York State. “We’re pleased to have been invited to Steuben County to discuss programs that can help homeowners provide safer and healthier homes for their families, support nonprofit organizations’ efforts to enhance local cultural resources, and help business owners protect their commercial investments for years to come.”
The cost for the program is $10. Architects may receive 2 HSW credit hours towards satisfying their continuing education license renewal requirements after attending the program. The Preservation League of New York State is a certified sponsor of Continuing Education Credits for Architects through the New York State Education Department.
