Nearly every community has a designated historical district. Many local zoning ordinances reference The Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties as the guiding standard for the renovation of a building located in their historic districts. What does it mean in practical terms to reference the Secretary of Interior standards? When local citizens demand a building be saved or listed on the National Register of Historic Places, what protections are actually enacted.
This presentation will:
1) Provide an overview of the criteria it takes to get a building listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
2) Review the protections or lack thereof providing a building being listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
3) Provide an overview of The Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for theTreatment of Historic Properties and the related Preservation Briefs.
4) Discuss how referencing The Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for theTreatment of Historic Properties may or may not protect historic buildings.
5) Discuss precautions that should be taken to save a building
The presentation will include case studies related to the topic.
