“Historic Preservation Toolkit Meeting Series” Traveling Communities of Louisiana in 2022, in the Bossier City area 3/22

If you want to repair or restore a historic building in your community, an upcoming meeting will provide many of the answers you need to get started. The Louisiana Trust for Historic Preservation (LTHP) is hitting the road to meet with Louisianans to share resources and tools to help educate the public on how best to save historic places in their backyards.

LTHP staff and LA Division of Historic Preservation partners hosted 9 in-person meetings (plus one virtual) in various parts of the state to connect with other conservators and community leaders. Topics will include establishing
historic landmark designations, tax credits, funding programs, easement protection processes, and other advocacy programs available in Louisiana. The meetings will also have open discussions to learn about the challenges and successes related to historic preservation in each of the regions.

All meetings are open to the public and run from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Registration is appreciated and can be done at www.lthp.org/events. People in surrounding communities are encouraged to attend the meeting in Bossier City at the Bossier Arts Council, 650 Barksdale Boulevard, Bossier City, LA 71111. Masks are required.
