Shorewood Architecture Reflects Village History: Options for Preservation

Tuesday, May 11

6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Location: Virtual via Zoom

Shorewood Architecture Reflects Village History: How Can We Leverage Our Historic Resources to Benefit the Whole Community? is a three-part series that  will cover the Village of Shorewood's history, architecture, and tools for conservation. Participants will be encouraged to share opinions and ideas on steps the Village could take to conserve the unique historic character of places and neighborhoods that bear witness to the community’s history.

Session Three: Options for Preservation

A variety of tools are available to assist communities interested in conserving historic properties. Jason Tish of the Wisconsin State Historic Preservation Office will explain the range of options available to local government and property owners. Individual property preservation (i.e. businesses, public buildings, individual and multi-family homes), historic districts, and other unique options will be considered. After the presentation, attendees will be invited to comment and ask questions.

At the end of the this session, attendee opinions on historic preservation in Shorewood, the usefulness of particular preservation tools and next steps for our Village will be solicited in a questionnaire.
