The Portland Plan: Historic Preservation’s Future
Saturday, February 12, 2011 10:00 am – Noon

All Tickets: $10

The past 18 months of the Portland Plan “update” have been loaded with meetings, forums, websites to monitor, and a crush of additional issues that have been added to the mix. Historic preservation has gotten rather buried and the topic has been quieter than it deserves—given that more than 60,000 of Portland’s buildings were constructed before 1930. This session will be a full update on the various components of the Portland Plan—what’s in play and what lies ahead. How can we influence and impact what the Plan update does for historic preservation?

Presenting from the Portland Bureau of Planning and Sustainability will be Steve Dotterer and Nicholas Starin—both are City Planners with long tenure at BPS, and have deep interest in historic preservation. BMF/AHC Executive Director Cathy Galbraith will present an update on the Cornerstones African American Buildings History inventory, and how growth, development, zoning and Portland Plan policies have impacted these important buildings.

If the Portland Plan is overwhelming to you and your neighborhood—and you care about community preservation—this program is for you.

Pre-registration is strongly suggested.
This program is assisted by a Partners in the Field challenge grant from the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
