This session is intended for planning and zoning officials and professional planners who don’t work in the historic preservation sector. The session will acquaint participants more intimately with the ins and outs of historic preservation at the local level. There will be time for questions to help participants better understand and eventually apply concepts to their respective communities.

Presenters at this session will acquaint participants with essential terminology, regulatory tools, and funding sources for engaging in both residential and commercial historic preservation at the local level. The presenters will discuss successful historic preservation in small cities, mid-sized cities, and villages across New York state. A question and answer session will follow the presentation.
