The Challenge of Saving Our Urban Legacy (CM | 14.0)
January 12, 2011
Course Dates: January 12th through March 11th
Co-sponsored by the American Planning Association – NJ Chapter and Drew University, this course explores the particular challenge of preserving historic resources in New Jersey’s urban areas in the face of development pressure, the high cost of adaptive reuse, the unintended effects of public policies, and the low number of traditional historic-preservation stakeholders. In addition to the evenings lectures, two Friday afternoon field trips are planned to Hoboken and Jersey City where students will have the opportunity to visit adaptive re-use projects and a transfer of development rights project. Guest experts include urban planners, a curator, educator, developers and a public-policy expert.
