Neighborhood Preservation Toolkit 

Background

In 2018, PennPraxis led the Historic Preservation Citizen Engagement Project, bringing the conversation started by the Mayor’s Task Force on Historic Preservation to neighborhoods throughout Philadelphia. The project was funded by the William Penn Foundation, and was led by PennPraxis Managing Director Julie Donofrio and Research Associate Molly Lester, in partnership with a network of 21 community liaisons. Its resulting Neighborhood Preservation Toolkit is a new, free resource to build a larger, broader constituency for preservation in Philadelphia. The toolkit is available through PennPraxis and on PHLPreservation.org, the website of the Historic Preservation Task Force. It is published in English, Chinese, and Spanish, and is available for download as the full version or as individual chapters.
