About the Program
The PRC proposes and supports legislation favorable to historic preservation and works to prevent the passage of legislation and proposals that are detrimental to the preservation of our historic architecture and neighborhoods. As active advocates at the local, state and federal levels of government, we have helped save the federal tax credit for historic rehabilitation, create a property tax abatement for home renovation, prevent inappropriate demolitions and numerous zoning measures favorable to historic neighborhoods and properties.
The PRC gets involved in issues addressed in Preservation in Print as well as those raised by neighborhood associations, the City Council, the City Planning Commission, the Historic District Landmarks Commission, the Board of Zoning Adjustment, the State Legislature, and the U.S. Congress.
