Green Guidelines Selected to be Showcased at National Conference
The N.H. Preservation Alliance’s “road map” for using historic preservation to promote environmental and economic sustainability was selected to be showcased at a national conference this fall. The Preservation Alliance first produced Green Guidelines: Promoting Environmental and Economic Sustainability Through Historic Preservation for State Policy Makers and Green Guidelines: Promoting Environmental and Economic Sustainability Through Historic Preservation for Local Decision-Makers in 2009, and will update the document again for the new legislative session in 2013. The Green Guidelines communications include priorities and data from organizations involved with conservation, agriculture, tourism, transportation and development.
The project has enjoyed support from Richard and Julia Moe Preservation Fund for Statewide and Local Partners of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, Elizabeth Durfee Hengen Preservation Consultant, Finegold Alexander + Associates, Inc., Hawk Planning Resources LC, North Branch Construction and other donors. Citizens Bank and WMUR-TV also recently named the Preservation Alliance a 2012 Champion in Action.
The New Hampshire Preservation Alliance is the statewide membership organization dedicated to preserving historic buildings, communities and landscapes through education and advocacy. Current priorities include providing assistance to community leaders; promoting the use of easements, barn preservation and tax incentives; and connecting property owners to weatherization information.
