Arranging Site Visit with an Elected Official 

05-20-2016 18:33

The National Trust for Historic Preservation, Main Street America, National Trust Community Investment Corporation (NTCIC), and preservation allies throughout the country are engaged in advocacy campaigns to build support for historic preservation and Main Street activities with Members of Congress, state legislators, mayors, and other officials.

A site visit by an official can be an invaluable part of your advocacy. Visiting a project or neighborhood provides legislators with a unique opportunity to see first-hand how their government is leveraging significant private investment through the reuse of our historic buildings. For example, during tours of a tax credit rehabilitation project, officials learn how many jobs are created during the construction phase, how the new use will spur broader economic activity in the surrounding neighborhood, how the historic character of the building is preserved, and challenges encountered.

This document is a recommendations for arranging you own successful site visit with an elected official.
