Historic Preservation and Downtown Conference April 29, 2011

This year the VT Division for Historic Preservation will be combining its two

statewide conferences into one, providing three specific education tracks:
The Historic Track will be of interest to Historical Societies, Byway
communities, heritage tourism groups, to those interested in history and
historic preservation, and to those wanting to learn more about Poultney. The
Streets as Places Track introduces “placemaking” – the art of transforming
public spaces into vibrant community places – within the context of streets
that are vital to all of our downtowns, villages and neighborhoods. The
Downtown Revitalization Track will present various tools to assist in the
revitalization efforts of your downtown or village center. For more info visit:
