WEBINAR: Interpreting the Secretary of the Interior's Standards for Rehabilitation
Handouts for the Webinar:
Design Standards and Guidelines
Certificates of Appropriateness are based off of the Secretary of Interior's Standards for Rehabilitation. The standards are listed on the National Park Service's website. The guidelines help communities interpret the standards.
Historic Resource Criteria and Survey
The criteria used to locally designate historic resources are typically based on the criteria used for the National Register of Historic Places. CLG communities are also expected to keep an inventory of historic properties designated at the federal, state, and local level.
Education and Outreach
Many local historic preservation boards and commissions are charged with educating their communities about the benefits of historic preservation. Education and outreach leads to a better understanding and appreciation of preservation.
National & State Organizations
In addition to these resources, CLG communities have access to the CLG listserv. The listserv is managed by the Texas Historical Commission, and allows communities to ask questions, discuss common issues, and share information. Please contact Madeline Clites at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be added to the listserv.
