HDC Advocacy Methods

To further the preservation ethic, we create and sponsor educational forums for local communities, helping them learn and employ the techniques of neighborhood preservation. Historic preservation became policy largely because of citizen arousal over the demolition of such architectural icons as Pennsylvania Station, so an informed public is important for its continuing strength; we meet that mandate by staging an annual Preservation Conference open to the public and by publishing a zoning survey of historic districts as well as our classic guidebook to the landmark-designation process, “Creating an Historic District.”
