Our world is changing and historic preservation must too. Cultural fragmentation, demographic shifts, economic and political transformation, climate change, and the emergence of digital technologies that affect our relationship to place—all of these realities must be faced if preservation is to embrace its rightful role as a living and vital connection to our past. Join the conversation with our panel of thinkers and doers as we ask: What role can preservation play in enhancing the financial, environmental, social, and cultural well-being of our communities? How can we embrace the past without losing sight of our future?

Building envelopes provide shelter for all activities which occur within. They are made of many different types of materials and vary greatly in size and configuration. But from the moment they are constructed they start to deteriorate. The goal of this session, focused on roofs and facades, is to show how they are constructed, how and why they deteriorate and how to remedy a range of key problems which occur. In particular, each presenter will explore critical details for performance and longevity.

June 8, 2018

Audience: HPC

Time: 10:45 am - 12:00 pm

  • Location:
  • Room 211A

Have you ever driven past a building in your historic district and thought, “Hey, we didn’t approve THAT!” Has your municipality’s Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) reviewed a project pursuant to the local preservation ordinance, only to discover that the project wasn’t built as it was approved, or was built without any approval at all? This session will explore how a municipality can and should address issues of non-compliance with an HPC or planning board determination, violations, and enforcement. A strong relationship and effective communication between the HPC and other municipal officials, including the code or construction officials responsible for enforcement, are critical to the success of the larger municipal land use system.
