Historic Preservation 101

In January (at the January 3, 2019 City Council meeting), the City of Clarkston established a Historic Preservation Commission, HPC, to oversee initiatives including conducting inventories of Clarkston’s historic assets, proposing historic districts and sites, promoting awareness through a wide range of activities, and acting as advisors to public officials related to historic preservation issues.

Want to learn more about the HPC, how you can get involved, and what all it can do to preserve historic structures in our community? On Saturday, June 8th from 10:00 a.m. - 1:00p.m., the City of Clarkston is sponsoring a Historic Preservation 101 session to provide you with the opportunity to do just that.

Mallory Donaldson from the DeKalb History Center and Sarah Rogers, Certified Local Government Coordinator with the Georgia Historic Preservation Division, will discuss a brief history of the historic preservation field and how local residents can get involved with preserving Clarkston’s historic resources.

The event will be held at the Clarkston Women’s Club, 3913 Church St, Clarkston, GA 30021.
