Landmark Society of Western New York Announces Five To Revive
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com -
Contributed By: Landmark Society of Western New York
Website: http://landmarksociety.org/programs/five-to-revive

The heart of preservation is community revitalization.  Beginning this year, The Landmark Society will annually publish Five to Revive, a list that will call attention to five properties in Western New York that are in need of investment. Whether buildings, landscapes, or structures, they are significant historic properties whose rehabilitations can become catalytic projects for the neighborhoods and communities that surround them.

The irreplaceable historic resources listed in Five to Revive will become priority projects for Landmark Society staff and programs. The Landmark Society will work collaboratively with owners, municipal officials, and developers to facilitate investment and foster rehabilitation so that these structures can again play an active role in their communities. Criteria considered for selection for Five to Revive includes: architectural/design integrity, historical significance, identifiably threatened resource, potential catalytic impact and likelihood that inclusion on list will help facilitate a positive outcome.

Launched as part of The Landmark Society’s 75th Anniversary, the Five to Revive program will enhance the organization’s ongoing efforts to support revitalization in western New York. Historic preservation isn’t just about the past. Preservation is revitalization. Preservation creates local jobs, stimulates investment, increases tax revenues and builds sustainable communities.

Five to Revive is a subcommittee of the Preservation Issues Committee of The Landmark Society.  It is chaired by Tom Castelein, Vice-President of Preservation, who is also the chair of Preservation Issues.  Preservation Issues committee members also on the subcommittee include Jennifer Kellogg, Katie Eggers Comeau and Gary Bogue.  The subcommittee also includes the four staff members of the Preservation Division of The Landmark Society – Wayne Goodman, Executive Director; Larry Francer, Associate Director of Preservation; Cynthia Howk, Architectural Research Associate and Caitlin Meives, Preservation Planner.
