Historic sites play a critical role in shaping a community’s character, and contribute to aesthetic, spatial, and cultural themes that inform future development. Strategic protection of historic sites may also contribute to the sustainable goals of the City as well as the overall health and maintenance of public and private properties. This project analyzes the relationship between land use regulation, community identity, and the intentional design of the built environment. It will incorporate a range of skills developed in the CRP undergraduate program, including data collection and analysis; public outreach; writing professional documents and policy; and communicating information across a variety of mediums.
