Course Description

Like all planning processes, historic preservation is subject to intense political conflict. The politics of historic preservation are most hotly contested in cities and metropolitan areas where strong preservation practices come into contact with pressure from population growth and development investment interests.

This course discusses how planners contribute to the preservation of historic resources. The course reviews the various traditional and non-traditional tools that planners can use to impact preservation and review the various policy and legal tools that preservationists use to preserve architecture and spaces.
