Historic Preservation Commission Training
March 11, 2011 - March 12, 2011
Historic preservation commissions and others can get training from the Vinson Institute to help them carry out their responsibilities and maintain the integrity of protected community locations.
The Institute offers historic preservation commission training twice annually in different host locations throughout the state in partnership with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources Historic Preservation Division, the Georgia Alliance for Preservation Commissions, and the UGA Center for Community Design and Preservation.
This specialized training explains how to administer local preservation ordinances more effectively. You will learn about preservation law, design guidelines, procedures, administrative issues, local preservation planning, and community development strategies.
In addition to those who serve on commissions, the training can benefit local planning and development officials, city and county attorneys, historic property owners, Main Street and Better HomeTown managers and board members, and local building inspectors.
Historic Preservation Commission training will be held in Carrollton on March 11 and 12. The training is organized by the Carl Vinson Institute of Government at UGA. For more information, including online registration, go to http://www.cviog.uga.edu/training/local/preservation.php
