“Historic Preservation Toolkit Meeting Series” helps educate the public on saving historic places

If you are interested in fixing up or restoring a historic building  in your community, an upcoming meeting will provide you with many of the answers  you need to get started. The Louisiana Trust for Historic Preservation (LTHP) is hitting the  road to meet with Louisianans to share resources and tools to help educate the public  on how to best save historic places in their backyard.  

LTHP staff and partners from the LA Division of Historic Preservation have organized 9 in-person meetings (plus one virtual) in various regions of the state to connect with fellow  preservationists and community leaders to attend. Topics will include establishing  historic landmark designations, tax credits, funding programs, easement protection  process, and other advocacy programs that are available in Louisiana. The meetings  will also have open discussion to learn about the challenges and successes related to  historic preservation in each of the regions.  

All meetings are open to the public and run from 5:30 to 7:00. Registration is  appreciated and can be completed at www.lthp.org/events. Those located in  surrounding communities are encouraged to attend the meeting in Bossier City at the  Bossier Arts Council, 650 Barksdale Boulevard, Bossier City, LA 71111. Masks are  required.
