Historic Preservation With or Without a Local Historic District

Lecture on May 23rd in Brewster

Historic Preservation With Or Without A Local Historic District May 23 lecture sponsored by Cape Cod Commission & Brewster Historical Commission Please join the Cape Cod Commission, Massachusetts Historical Commission and Brewster Historical Commission for a presentation and discussion of historic preservation tools Tuesday, May 23, 2017 from 10 a.m. to Noon Chris Skelly, Director Of Local Government Programs, Massachusetts Historical Commission, will speak on Historic Preservation With Or Without A Local Historic District.

The presentation will explain both regulatory and non-regulatory approaches to historic preservation that are typically used at the local level.

While local historic districts are a popular tool for preservation, they are not always successful.  Local historical commissions and other local groups interested in protecting historic resources can find far more success through a balanced approach that is unique to their community and based on a wide range of effective tools.

This lecture will highlight the benefits of a realistic, cooperative, go-slow approach.

A second presentation, Recent Preservation Efforts On Cape Cod, will be made by Sarah Korjeff, Preservation Specialist at the Cape Cod Commission.

The event will be held at the Brewster Ladies Library, 1822 Main Street/Route 6A, Brewster.

Sponsored by the Cape Cod Commission, Massachusetts Historical Commission and the Brewster Historical Commission Pre-registration is encouraged.
