How can preservation play a greater role in securing healthier, more sustainable and just cities? And, how can the preservation movement as a whole be seen as a valuable resource and champion for livability in our communities?
This important discussion will take center stage at PastForward this fall in Houston. As one of the main conference themes, the livability track will examine best practices and smart strategies for preserving and rescuing older and historic places in urban areas.
