Looking to preserve your neighborhood’s heritage for future generations? Local historic districts are an excellent planning tool that allows communities to establish demolition review and design standards to insure new development is compatible with the historic fabric already in place. This workshop will give you the guidance and tools you need to establish your own local historic district, including how to identify architectural styles and neighborhood characteristics; how to craft effective design guidelines to fit your community; and how to navigate the city’s code and approval process to take your district to City Council.

If you missed our December workshop, this is your chance!

PRESENTERS:

  • ALYSON MCGEE, PA’s Immediate Past President and former Deputy Historic Preservation Officer for the City of Austin
  • KATE SINGLETON, PA’s Executive Director and former Chief Preservation Planner for the City of Dallas

Free, but RSVPs to programs@preservationaustin.org are required by Monday, February 20. Space is limited. Coffee and light refreshments provided!

This workshop is presented with the generous support of the Butler Family Foundation.
