Maintaining Neighborhood Character: An APA/AICP Audio/Web Conference Training Series

Maintaining Neighborhood Character

May 16, 2012, 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM

Many historic neighborhoods have experienced teardowns and the rebuilding of monster homes or other buildings that undermine sound planning. For historic and conservation districts this is a pressing issue. Learn how communities have developed codes, guidelines, and community visioning programs that respond to these incompatible developments. As communities grow and change, explore how historic preservation can be successfully linked to new development.

Certification Maintenance: This audio/web conference has been approved for 1.0 CM.
