Preservation Week Set For May 2001

"Restore, renew, rediscover your historic neighborhood schools" is the theme for this year's preservation week.

The Trust for Historic Preservation announced today that the theme of Preservation Week 2001 is, "Restore, Renew, Rediscover Your Historic Neighborhood Schools!" Preservation Week will be celebrated May 13-19, 2001. The National Trust previously released the report, "Historic Neighborhood Schools in the Age of Sprawl: Why Johnny Can't Walk to School," in which it contends that public policies, including excessive acreage requirements, funding formulas and planning code exemptions, are promoting the spread of mega-school sprawl on outlying, undeveloped land at the expense of small, walkable, community-centered schools in older neighborhoods. The National Trust calls on school administrators and public officials to establish policies that will preserve and upgrade historic neighborhood schools.
