Preservation Maryland will convene Maryland’s statewide historic preservation and smart growth conference, the Old Line State Summit, in Frederick on Wednesday, July 24, 2019.
This full-day event is for anyone who is committed to protecting the places that make Maryland special and those who want to know more about how to use new tools, grow effective collaborations, and hone their preservation skills. Attendees and speakers for this one-day conference range from planners, architects, Main Street professionals, museum volunteers and staff, students, businesses, and more.
Topics will include placemaking, smart growth advocacy, augmented and virtual reality technologies at historic sites, real estate development, cemetery and architectural documentation, Latinx history and outreach, climate change, and a tour of Frederick’s architecture.
Jim Lindberg, Vice President of Research and Policy for the National Trust for Historic Preservation, will discuss the ways the goals of preservation are interconnected with those of advocates for issues like the environment, community health, and equitable development. Research across these various fields demonstrates the need to build new rules and unwind entrenched thinking on building communities. The aim to create places that are greener, healthier, and more equitable applies to urban and rural communities alike.
