Detroit Historic Districts: Hard truths, benefits and myth-busting... Oct. 20 Panel Discussion hoste
Thinking about buying a home or property in a historic district? You probably have some questions, like "What do I have to get permission for? Is it worth the extra hassle? How much will it really cost to fix up those wood windows?" Or maybe you're curious about how your neighborhood might become a historic district, and what that would mean for you. Join Brick + Beam Detroit on Oct. 20 from 6-8 pm for a panel discussion on the nuts and bolts of historic districts. You'll hear from a member of the Detroit Historic District Commission, who will talk about local historic district process and policy; a contractor who'll talk about finding and working with tradespeople who are knowledgeable about rehabilitation; and a homeowner wh...o's been through the process personally. Come with lots of questions! - Devan Anderson, chairperson of the Detroit Historic District Commission - John Biggar, owner, Integrity Building Group - Martha Potere, Economic Development Program Manager, Grandmont Rosedale Development Corporation, and historic district resident
The Michigan Historic Preservation Network will also be on hand to provide an update and answer questions about legislation that could have a significant impact on local historic districts across the state. This event is free, but space is limited, so please RSVP!
