One-day program to highlight the economics of historic preservation


Preserve Arkansas, the state’s only nonprofit advocate for the preservation of historic places in Arkansas, announced that Eureka Springs will host “Dollars & Sense of Historic Preservation” on Friday, August 26 at the Auditorium.

First held in Hot Springs in 2014, the one-day program is designed to emphasize the economic benefits of preservation, provide information and resources on conservation incentives, and encourage the use of incentives through concrete, concrete examples.

The agenda, which begins at 8:30 a.m. with registration, coffee and pastries, will include a keynote address by Briana Grosicki, consultant at Ethos Preservation in Savannah, Georgia, as well as presentations on the National Register of Historic Places, Grants restoration programs for historic preservation, federal and state tax credits for historic rehabilitation, wood window repair and success stories.

The program is designed to meet the needs of chambers of commerce, private and public economic development and community organizations, real estate agents, owners of historic properties, planners, bankers, municipal officials, county leaders and anyone interested in community and economic development.

Grosicki’s expertise includes a range of project types, including advice on historic tax credits, economic feasibility studies, municipal historic preservation programs and community engagement.

Previously, she was Associate Director at PlaceEconomics, where she contributed to more than 30 analytical studies at the intersection of historic preservation and economics.
