Historic Preservation Policies in Belgium (Flanders and Brussels)

During our April meeting, we will consider how preservation policies in the U.S. could be improved in order to our communities retain qualities we value: a healthy mix of building types and ages, where a) truly significant buildings are respectfully preserved, b) new construction in historic areas is well-integrated into existing patterns (i.e., neither overwhelming nor jarring), and c) older buildings are kept in service rather than consigned to landfills. Construction historian and historic preservation consultant Sara E. Wermiel, PhD will compare and contrast U.S. approaches and practices to city planning and preservation with those of Belgium’s Flanders and Brussels regions, highlighting policies of particular interest and relevance to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Her talk will touch on policies that regulate or incentivize owners of private property to “do the right thing.”

For those who qualify, 1.5 LUs are available.
