Rebuilding Place in the Urban Space

"A community’s physical form, rather than its land uses, is its most intrinsic and enduring characteristic." [Katz, EPA] This blog focuses on place and placemaking and all that makes it work--historic preservation, urban design, transportation, asset-based community development, arts & cultural development, commercial district revitalization, tourism & destination development, and quality of life advocacy--along with doses of civic engagement and good governance watchdogging.

Historic Preservation Tuesday: Preservation Maryland announces new technical assistance program, Six to Fix, looks for nominations

From email:
Preservation Maryland is excited to debut a brand new program to help save threatened history across the state: Preservation Maryland's Six-To-Fix.

Rather than creating lists of threatened buildings, we’re ready to do something about it.

An online nomination process for organizations, individuals and local governments interested in “fixing” or preserving a threatened historic resource is now open at Six-To-Fix!

The program will be open to all varieties of historic resources. The nominating organization must be willing to participate in the project as a team leader and to help be part of the fix.

The six sites selected will receive a tailored package of support from Preservation Maryland, which will likely include:
  • Seed funding
  • Professional, technical assistance
  • Partnership building assistance
  • Organizational capacity building assistance
  • Inclusion in a statewide publicity campaign​
Nominations will be accepted through July 20, 2015.

For more information and to submit a nomination click here.

Don’t have a site to nominate but still want to get involved?

There’s still a big role for you to play. Individuals are encouraged to sign-up to become a Six-To-Fix volunteer!

Individuals with preservation as well as business skills can easily list themselves with us as being interested in getting involved & volunteering with the program.

We need architects, engineers, attorneys, business leaders, writers, artists, & more! These individuals will be the beginning of a new Corps of Volunteers that we know will make this program a success. No matter your skill - we will find a job for you!
