On Thursday, September 22nd the Office of Downtown Development offered a webinar with Ms. Kate Ryan, Director of Preservation at the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation. Kate, a long-time advocate and partner of the Georgia Main Street Program, discussed the successful Places In Peril program offered by the Georgia Trust.
The Georgia Trust’s Places in Peril program seeks to identify and preserve historic sites threatened by demolition, neglect, lack of maintenance, inappropriate development or insensitive public policy. The list raises awareness about Georgia’s significant historic, archaeological and cultural resources, including buildings, structures, districts, archaeological sites and cultural landscapes. Through this program, the Trust encourages owners and individuals, organizations and communities to employ preservation tools, partnerships and resources necessary to preserve and utilize selected historic properties in peril.
