General Email Newsletter  -  Vol. III   Issue 2


Greetings Preservationists,

As Spring is nearing (in the Pacific Northwest at least!), we are excited to get back outside and poke around Portland's great historic places.  It is with great local pride that we are able to announce that Portland (our hometown) was recently named to the National Trust for Historic Preservation's list of "America's Dozen Distinctive Destinations® for 2008".  That and a selection of other preservation-related information can be found below in our new feature -  "Preservation News You Can Use".

We have also added "Preservation News You Can Use" to our homepage, where we will highlight major news and information of great interest to the preservation community on a daily/weekly basis.  Check the homepage often for headlines, which will provide a link to the full article.  A wealth of information will continue to be added to our "Preservation Blog", but in an attempt to spread the word about pressing legislation, announce deadlines for grants and funding opportunities, and spotlight other information of most interest to our readers, we will spotlight these items on our homepage.  We know that you will find these items highly useful in your pursuit of preservation.

Certified Local Government Category:

We are working towards the completion of our "Certified Local Government Commissions" category, which will soon include over 1,500 CLGs (historic preservation boards, landmarks commissions, planning departments, etc). 

This is a daunting task, and we are working to have the directory completed in March or early April.  The directory is currently complete thru Florida, and does include CLG's for other States as well (although the directories for these States are not yet fully complete).
