Equity Preservation: Sharing and Deepening Connections

Funding student and faculty travel to present at the American Planning Association and extend research on landbanking and community land trusts

At the 2017 Equity Preservation and Planning Workshop, graduate and undergraduate students engaged with community leaders in Buffalo to prepare a community-wide assessment of the linkages between historic preservation, community development and social equity. The group aimed to create a set of best practices that would assist the workshop partners, which included Preservation Green Lab, the research wing of the National Trust for Historic Preservation; Preservation Rightsizing Network; and Preservation Buffalo Niagara. The team is using this grant to continue the research and present their findings to planning and preservation practitioners at the American Planning Association.
