Maintaining Neighborhood Character Workshop

Many historic neighborhoods are experiencing rapid teardowns and the rebuilding of monster homes or other buildings that undermine smart growth principles. For historic and conservation districts this is a pressing issue. Learn how communities have developed codes and guidelines, as well as community visioning programs, that respond to these incompatible developments. As communities grow and change, explore how historic preservation can be successfully linked to new development. Cosponsor: National Alliance of Preservation Commissions. CPD: 1.5 Nearby parking is available. Please see the RTA website at http://www.riderta.com/maps-schedules.asp#downtown for information on bus/trolley routes and schedules.

The Cleveland Section of the Ohio Planning Conference is sponsoring the 2007 APA Audio/Web Conference Training Series. Take advantage of these long-distance learning opportunities to earn CPD credits.

We are offering these workshops FREE of charge to OPC members; non-members are welcome to attend for a $5 fee. Light refreshments will be served.

An RSVP is required for each workshop. Please contact Ann Pylkas, Program Chair, at ann.pylkas@shakeronline.com or 216-491-1436 to reserve your space.

See www.ohioplanning.org for additional information on this and future workshops. Topics will include: Maintaining Neighborhood Character; Introduction to the Board of Zoning Appeals; Inclusionary Housing; and Planning Law.
