How do we protect historic properties that cannot be moved or modified, when the next disaster strikes? This is a critical question faced by many owners of properties listed on the National Register of Historic Places, state registers, or those located in local historic districts. Changing their original materials, locations or character-defining features can put these properties at risk of losing their historic designation. How, then, do we protect these resources and address them in local hazard mitigation plans? This webinar will feature VPC’s recent case studies in Maryland and Pennsylvania.
