On July 17th, the National Trust partnered with Smart Growth America, the Northeast-Midwest Institute, and Reconnecting America to host a briefing for over 100 Capitol Hill staffers on “sustainable urban redevelopment” to highlight projects that are green and energy-efficient both internally and externally, and save energy by virtue of location and relationship to the city.

Restoration was a key component of the session and Portland architect Ralph DeNola presented a case study on behalf of the Trust on the Portland Armory in Portland, Oregon, and neighboring restoration projects on behalf of the Trust to demonstrate the key role that rehabilitation of historic buildings in creating sustainable urban redevelopment. DeNola and other presenters used their case studies to illustrate key policy recommendations, including the need to pass the “Community Restoration and Revitalization Act” (HR 1043/S. 584) as well as other legislation encouraging brownfields redevelopment.
