Trust for Architectural Easements and Island Press Promote Sustainability and Historic Preservation in New York
Focusing on walkable urban centers and away from drivable suburban sprawl will require federal policy leadership and local action to change regulations. Many areas of the United States have zoning and building codes that discourage historic building rehabilitation and the creation of sustainable urban communities due to ambiguous terminology and the interpretive whims of the code officials.
The Trust for Architectural Easements and Island Press, co-sponsors of the successful and innovative Sustainability and Historic Preservation Thought Leader Discussion Series held from January to March in Washington, DC, are taking the popular discussion series on the road.
How Policy and Regulation Affect Sustainable Development
April 29th from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the General Society of Mechanics and Tradesmen, Library (20 West 44th Street)
The panel brings together experts from the financial, real estate, architecture, preservation, planning, and policy worlds to provide theories, best practices, and examples of navigating the sometimes daunting waters to create a future that is environmentally, financially, and socially sound.
