Six To Celebrate 2013 Application

The Historic Districts Council is happy to announce a call for applications for the 2013 Six to Celebrate.

The purpose of this program is to provide strategic resources to neighborhood groups at a critical moment so that they can reach their preservation goals.  The program will help community activists learn to use tools such as documentation, research, zoning, landmarking, publicity, and public outreach to advance local preservation campaigns.  The selected groups will receive HDC’s hands-on help strategizing and implementing all aspects of their efforts over the course of the 2013 calendar year.
