On Friday, October 15th, the Preservation Foundation will proudly host and sponsor a Florida Trust for Historic Preservation workshop on Current Issues in Historic Property Designation. Hedrick Brothers Construction is also a sponsor of the event.
The Workshop will be held at the Foundation’s offices located at 311 Peruvian Avenue in Palm Beach, Florida. It will begin at 9am and last until 3:30pm. The cost is $25 for students, $100 for Florida Trust forum members, $125 for general Florida Trust members, and $160 for non-members.
One of the toughest challenges faced by historic preservationists is dispelling common misconceptions about how historic property designation impacts a property owner. Opposition to historic property designation has revolved around property rights, design guidelines, and a lack of understanding about historical significance of a building or site. This workshop will address these issues utilizing case studies from around the state. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss current designation issues in their communities.
Speakers will include President of Research Atlantica and Preservation Consultant for the Town of Palm Beach Jane Day, Historic Preservation Chief for Miami-Dade County Kathleen Kauffman, City of West Palm Beach Historic Preservation Planner and Florida Trust Trustee Friederike Mittner, Architect of The Pandula Architects, Inc. and Town of Palm Beach Landmarks Commission Chair Gene Pandula, and Historic Preservation Consultant, Florida Historical Commission Member and Florida Trust Trustee Ellen Uguccioni.
Topics will include the benefits of the Historic Preservation Ordinance, owner consent, working with property owners, and national vs. local designations.
