Introduction To Historic Preservation Planning -- A Planetizen Online Course
Does your community recognize its historic resources? Has your local government taken advantage of preservation opportunities to promote economic development? Planetizen has teamed up with Hector Abreu Cintron, previously Professor and Chair of the Savannah College and Art and Design's Historic Preservation program, and currently working at the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation in Washington, D.C. to offer the first-ever online course on historic preservation planning, designed specifically for professional planners and others interested in implementing a wide range of preservation techniques in their own communities.
PLAN-110: Introduction to Historic Preservation Planning is a highly practical, informative, and affordable course that imparts the basic knowledge and action framework needed to develop historic preservation programs -- from historic resources surveys, to individual property nominations, to cultural resources elements of general plans.
The course provides a definitive overview of historic preservation practices, including coverage of:
* The Secretary of the Interior's Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties
* The History of Historic Preservation
* Historic Districts and How To Establish Them
* Preservation Legislation
* Preservation Planning Theory and Practice
* Identification, Evaluation, Registration, and Treatment of Historic Resources
* Local, State, and Federal Preservation Incentives
Course instructor Hector Abreu Cintron was previously Professor and Chair of the Savannah College and Art and Design's Historic Preservation program, and currently works as General Services Administration Liaison for the ACHP, an independent Federal agency that promotes the preservation, enhancement, and productive use of America's historic resources, and advises the President and Congress on national historic preservation policy.
Every Planetizen course has been approved by the American Institute of Certified Planners to provide Continuing Professional Development Credits.
Planetizen courses are priced at $99 per session for unlimited access to the course. This course will be offered during Planetizen's Summer-Fall session, which begins July 1, 2006 and ends December 15, 2006.
