Webinar: Hazard Mitigation and Historic Preservation

June 26, 2018
2:00 pmto2:30 pm

Webinar hosted by Smart Growth Online

How do we protect historic properties that cannot be moved or modified, from the next disaster that strikes? This is a critical question faced by many owners of properties listed on the National Register of Historic Places and state registers or those located in local historic districts. Changing their original materials, locations or character-defining features can put these properties at risk of losing their historic designation. How, then, do we protect these resources? Are mitigation and preservation both possible? Explore answers in this webinar.
