Conference on Balancing Public Safety and Protection of Historic Places
Life safety and making public places secure are now paramount issues facing government and the private sector at all levels. This conference
will focus on how this environment will affect the historic character of America's cities and towns and how to make public spoaces as secure
as possible while respecting the historic character of public buildings, structures, landscapes, transportation systems, neighborhoods, and parks.
The conference will immediately precede the mid-winter US Conference of Mayors meeting and will provide speakers, case studies, and breakout
sessions to launch a national dialogue on meeting public safety needs while preserving irreplaceable historic resources. Major agenda items are
expected to include risk management and assessment, lessons learned from experience, and commonsense approaches to sensitive protective
measures. Speakers have been invited from NYC, Washington DC, the Pentagon and others. Registeration will be sent out via email to
heads of Federal agencies, Federal preservation officers, State Historic Preservation Officers, Tribal Historic Preservation Officers and others.
