Pre-Conference Workshop with Preservation Rightsizing Network, Legacy Cities Partnership and Live6
  •  
Time Slot: 12:00 PM Tue 09/13/16

View Abstract

Join the Preservation Rightsizing Network, Legacy Cities Partnership, and Live6 for a half-day on-site workshop in Livernois on September 13 to explore how to transform community stories into real resources for neighborhood revitalization. The workshop will include a short walking tour of the Livernois Avenue commercial corridor, focused small-group discussions, and collective brainstorming to tackle pressing questions around how to bridge local heritage with brick-and-mortar reinvestment. This is an important and relevant issue in the Live6 area - and older and historic neighborhoods across the country. Come early for the conference and help us learn together! The workshop will be held from noon to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, September 13. Lunch and transportation from the McGregor Center/conference headquarters to the workshop will be provided, with buses leaving at 11:30 a.m. Workshop participants will include neighborhood residents and other community members, national experts, and a limited number of conference attendees. A workshop fee of $25 will help cover costs, including lunch. Live6 is a nonprofit planning and development organization whose mission is to enhance quality of life and economic opportunity in Northwest Detroit. The Preservation Rightsizing Network works in legacy cities to preserve local heritage and revitalize the built environment. The Legacy Cities Partnership Partnership is a national coalition working to empower America’s legacy cities. This workshop is part of an ongoing local pilot project for the Action Agenda for Historic Preservation in Legacy Cities and generously supported by the Legacy Cities Partnership and The American Assembly.

Resourceful Economic Development in Legacy City Neighborhoods Panel
  • by Tom Goddeeris, Grandmont Rosedale DC, Lauren Hood, Live6 Alliance, Kathleen Wendler, Vernor Development and Jill Ferrari, Michigan Community Resources 
Room: Community Arts Auditorium, Time Slot: 10:45 AM Wed 09/14/16

View Abstract

Resourceful Economic Development in Legacy City Neighborhoods In the wake of mass abandonment and disinvestment, neighborhoods in America’s Legacy Cities must provide stability and security to attract and retain long term-residents. They must offer access to education, transportation, health care, food, commercial retail, support services and more to achieve a healthy, balanced community. As they work to rebuild, neighborhoods often struggle with the fate of their cultural identity. Populations shift, historic buildings see changes in use, and businesses open and close. How are historic preservation, cultural identity, and history being considered in terms of economic development? How have preservation and reuse of the built environment impacted the preservation of a neighborhood’s cultural identity, history, and assets such as neighborhood and business organizations? What initiatives and strategies being employed are unique to Detroit neighborhoods and how have city policies helped or hurt these initiatives? This panel will look at specific challenges in diverse neighborhoods, and the efforts being made to address and break down barriers to sustainable economic development.

Experimental Preservation Practices in Legacy Cities
  • by Terry Schwarz, Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative 
Room: McGregor Room BC, Time Slot: 01:30 PM Wed 09/14/16

View Abstract

Legacy Cities provide a lens through which we can reconsider the field of historic preservation--as a creative practice rather than a regulatory discipline. This session will use examples and case studies from Cleveland, Ohio, and other cities to consider the experimental possibilities of historic preservation in Legacy Cities.
