    Posted 17 days ago

    Hello All!

    Your community manager here! Continuing with a monthly post for you to share your events/deadlines/upcoming activities in one spot for October.

    Please feel free to share in this thread any relevant events, deadlines, or resources that are available the month of October. Even if your event is very geographically specific, I think there's value in all of us seeing what's out there and what people are doing-I know I find it interesting and helpful to learn what's going on out there!

    I'll get it started … I always have something to share here!

    We'll be livestreaming a bunch of programming during PastForward (Oct 10-12)...for FREE! I hope that you'll join us virtually if you won't be with us in Denver.

    The fine print!

    * The community is meant to be a place for conversation and dialogue, sharing of ideas and asking of questions, I certainly want it to be a comfortable place where you're not bombarded with promotional material, I also want you to be able to share some great events you're hosting or relevant material/resources that you have available. So to that end each month I'll start a thread for you to share events/deadlines/resources that are available in the coming month. Of course, we want the material and events to be relevant and make sense for the community members, but if we all include them in one post, we won't degrade the integrity of the community (per the Code of Conduct we don't want this to be a place where people sell their products or services, but if you have an event coming up that you think people would be interested in or have a call for ideas we can collect those all in one post every month). I also think by sharing events it may spark discussion or generate ideas for things that you may be considering doing.

    If you have questions of what would be appropriate, just send me a message. And, please don't post jobs here-we have a jobs board for that!

    I also forgot to add that I'm going to a Partners in Preservation: Vote Your Main Streets event this weekend!
    If anyone is in Salt Lake City be sure to stop by the Ladies Literary Clubhouse on Sat., Oct 5 from 9-9pm. They're going to have yoga/coffee at 9am, nook/crany tours throughout the day, and then a party in the evening...with dancing!
    PLUS, when your in person vote counts twice on Saturday and will help them in the competition to earn much needed grant funding.

    Thanks @Colleen Danz for this opportunity to share what's up around the country.

    I recently joined the board of Long Beach Heritage as their VP of Public Awareness. Looking forward to helping this great organization form a solid communications strategy and cohesive voice. We're seeking nominations for our 32nd annual Preservation Awards, due November 1.

    What I love about LB Heritage's awards is that they honor not just historic rehabs, pioneers in preservation, and educational programs, but also sensitive infill (new construction!) - how common is that nationwide? I'd love to hear all of your thoughts.

    That's really interesting @Cindy Olnick -- to my knowledge we haven't, but I like that idea -- sensitive infill. I personally feel like new construction isn't the enemy, as long as it's done right, thoughtfully, and within the culture and fabric of the community it's very good. I really appreciate awarding those that do it right!
    Now back to my non-personal feelings, but my professional input -- the award category that that type of award could fall under would be our

    Richard H. Driehaus Foundation National Preservation Awards. When are your awards? I'd love to see the recipients when they're announced.
    thanks,
    Colleen

    Thanks @Colleen Danz I think awarding sensitive infill is fantastic, since that's the wave of the future for sure. We should know the winners by the end of the year; I'll keep you posted!​

    I second the comment that "sensitive infill" would be a great category for an organization's annual awards. In light of your message, Cindy, I'll be recommending that the Madison Trust for Historic Preservation add it as a category for next year. 

    We have an existing category for "future landmarks" which is a similar, but distinct, effort to recognize excellence in new construction. 

    On a related topic, we've been fortunate to have some longstanding members on our committee that selects the award recipients. This type of institutional knowledge is somewhat helpful in maintaining consistency from year-to-year. However, we don't have any written standards or criteria for our various categories (other than simply the category name). If some other organizations have developed standards or criteria and would be willing to share, I'd love to see them.

    Thank you.

    While at Preservation Utah, we started a new award category for Compatible Addition. That's been well received with a nomination every year directly in that category, and used as a subcategory for other winners.

    Hi @Kurt Stege - Long Beach Heritage has honored sensitive infill for years (not sure how many); they may have gotten the idea from the California Preservation Foundation, whose award categories include Contextual Infill (see the Award Categories tab on their awards page).​

    The same page (Overview tab) lists CPF's eligibility criteria:
    • Qualifying projects include historical buildings, structures (50 years or older) or properties on, or determined eligible for, national, state or local historical registers or inventories, such as the National Register of Historic Places, California Register of Historical Resources, State Historical Landmarks, State Points of Historical Interest, and city or county registers, inventories or surveys of historical or architecturally significant sites, places or landmarks.
    • All projects must be located in California, or in the case of a study, etc., must deal with a California subject.
    • Project entries must have been completed between June 1, 2013 and May 31, 2019.
    To qualify for a Long Beach Heritage award, projects:
    • Must be located in the City of Long Beach
    • Should conform to the Secretary of Interior's Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties
    • Should be completed within one year prior to submission
    For a Los Angeles Conservancy award, projects must:
    Hope this helps!

    Milwaukee has had the categories of "sensitive addition" and "sensitive infill" for quite some time. It's nice to have them, but we rarely get submissions for those categories and they're awarded even less often.

    Usually additions get lumped into the rehabilitation or adaptive reuse categories. https://city.milwaukee.gov/cityclerk/hpc/CreamCityAwards

    @Timothy Askin I'm not surprised about low submissions re. new construction -- seems like something that would need to be encouraged/cultivated with specific projects but would help raise the profile of preservation as not being mutually exclusive with development. ​

    San Mateo County Parks Department has two special historic events occurring in October 2019:

    1)  The October 26, 2019 opening of the Sanchez Adobe Interpretive Center where three major periods of early California history can be interpreted at this single site, and it's first Ohlone Day with speakers representing the Ohlone tribes of the San Francisco Peninsula.  Here is a link for additional information:  https://historysmc.org/ohlone-day-event

    2)  The City of Pacifica, Golden Gate National Recreation Area and San Mateo County Parks Department are partnering to hold the first Ohlone Portol`a Heritage Day in recognition of 10,000 years of Ohlone history and the Gaspar de Portol`a's 250th anniversary of the first European sighting of the San Francisco Bay 11/4/19, which was the catalyst for the future development of California.  Here is a link for additional information:  https://www.smccvb.com/event/ohlone-portol%C3%A1-heritage-day/6380/

    Greetings all! We've extended the deadline for session proposals for the 2020 NY Statewide Preservation Conference!! Deadline is now Friday, 11/25.

    The Conference will take place March 26-28 in Syracuse, NY. We'd love to see proposals both from within and beyond NYS. There is no particular theme to the Conference--subject matter is wide open. However, we do place a priority on sessions that include diverse panelists/speakers and topics that address issues of diversity, inclusion, and equity in the HP field.

    >>Details here.
