Penn Praxis- Neighborhood Preservation Toolkit

February 28, 2019

PennPraxis helped convene a series of small-scale neighborhood conversations for residents to discuss a broad range of issues related to preserving and maintaining parts of the city that residents hold dear. 

The Toolkit itself is broken into five sections organized by outcomes, or perspectives, which include: caring for an older home, improving and maintaining design quality and character, strengthening and sustaining small businesses and commercial corridors, learning and sharing history, and creating change and influencing policy. Overall, the project is meant to expand conversations about neighborhood assets from the somewhat narrower disciplines of historic preservation to the broader notion of neighborhood preservation.
