Preservation Assistance

Historic commercial buildings are an asset to your community. They are a time-tested space for entrepreneurs that creates a sense of place by drawing destination traffic, providing upper floor residential units, and contributing to a community’s identity.

In addition to providing consultation on historic signage to encourage success of businesses in downtown buildings, we also offer expert architectural preservation assistance. This professional support includes directly working with historic property owners who are planning, or considering, rehabilitating a building. Whether the project is large, or small, we look forward to sharing our expertise and passion for architectural preservation.

We also provide technical assistance to Main Street organization boards and directors on architectural preservation and how it can contribute to further developing your downtown neighborhood’s sense of place. Programs can also be developed for municipal historic preservation commissions to assist with determining ordinances on signage, architectural preservation, and developing educational materials for downtown stakeholders. Contact us today to learn about educational options and we can collaborate on developing a program that will be a perfect fit for your downtown needs.
