What role does the past have to play in the future of the urban environment?
That was the question at the heart of Historic Preservation in America’s Legacy Cities, a three-day conference presented by the Maxine Goodman Levin College of Urban Affairs at Cleveland State University and the Cleveland Restoration Society.
The well-attended event brought nearly 300 preservationists, policymakers, elected officials, developers, scholars and students from 20 states to CSU in June for a full slate of presentations, workshops and tours of downtown Cleveland and surrounding neighborhoods.
Attendees examined the role of historic preservation in revitalizing cities where long-term population loss and economic decline present significant challenges.
