IHBC members may be interested in boosting CPD through the US Preservation Leadership Forum’s Webinar Series, the most recent of which is themed on: Preserving and Supporting Businesses in Historic Neighborhoods (free: registration required).
As part of its ongoing webinar series, Preservation Leadership Forum hosted ‘Preserving and Supporting Businesses in Historic Neighborhoods’ in collaboration with NeighborWorks America. This webinar examined how small local businesses contribute to the vitality of older neighborhoods by not only offering essential service but also serving as community anchors and strengthening neighborhoods’ unique sense of place. The conversation focused on efforts to preserve and support businesses in historic neighborhoods in San Francisco, California, and Houston, Texas. Mike Buhler from San Francisco Heritage described the organization’s efforts to create a Legacy Business Registry & Preservation Fund, and Zarana Sanghani and Kathy Flanagan-Payton from Fifth Ward Community Redevelopment Corporation discussed their work restoring historic buildings and supporting both old and new businesses in Houston’s Fifth Ward. Listeners also heard from Paul Singh, a representative from NeighborWorks America.
