Older and historic places are an integral part of the identities, cultures, and economies in Pennsylvania’s diverse communities.  These places where we live, work, and play can often mean different things to different people, which provides both opportunities and challenges as communities grow and change. 

How can planners help their communities and clients identify, protect, and enhance these places?  This one-day workshop, sponsored by the Pennsylvania State Historic Preservation Office (PA SHPO) and Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC), will familiarize county, municipal, and consulting planners with core historic preservation programs and concepts and help participants understand how to effectively integrate these ideas into planning processes, documents, and practice. 

Five hours of AICP Certification Maintenance (CM) credits available.

Please note that AICP members wishing to take advantage of the Certification Maintenance (CM) credits must stay for the duration of the event in order to receive credit.  Sign and evaluation sheets will be used to monitor attendance.
