Historic Preservation Incentives in Other Cities
12:00 PM – 1:30 PM Virtual Panel Discussion with Q&A
Philadelphia’s historic architecture rivals that of any American city. Yet we have no financial incentive program to encourage the restoration and adaptive re-use of historic properties. What can we learn from other cities? We’ll hear from preservation advocates in Baltimore, Chicago and New Orleans about municipal incentives for preservation available in those cities.
Programs highlighted will include:
- Chicago’s Class L Property Tax Initiative: Lisa DiChiera, Director of Advocacy, Landmarks Illinois
- Baltimore’s City Historic Tax Credit: Johns Hopkins, Executive Director, Baltimore Heritage
- New Orleans’ Revival Grants program: Danielle Del Sol, Executive Director, Preservation Resource Center of New Orleans
Moderated by Patrick Grossi, Advocacy Director, Preservation Alliance for Greater Philadelphia.
