Main Street Matters

Thursday, November 17, 2016

2:00 PM — 3:00 PM (Eastern)


Register for the webinar.

This webinar deals with rehabilitation concerns commonly encountered in historic “Main Street” communities. and, how preservation guidelines - specifically the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards - should be met.

So many towns in this country had historic central business districts that were the hub of commerce and social actively. Today, some of these surviving districts are more vibrant than others, but the large majority have experienced economic decline over time as people flocked to the suburbs. The good news is that there is renewed interest in our downtowns, as residents and visitors are attracted to their nice architecture, their convenience, and their overall sense of community. So, with that in mind, it is important to reuse and reinvigorate main street historic buildings, but not compromise their architectural integrity in the process. This is accomplished by meeting the Secretary’s Standards, which, in turn, adds new life to the core of our towns and villages.
