Reports

Over the course of its 18-month life (September 2017 to December 2018), the Task Force and its partner National Trust for Historic Preservation issued periodic reports on the current state of historic preservation in Philadelphia, and best practices in peer cities. The final report will feature a series of recommendations in which the Task Force will identify how the city can best survey its historic assets, regulate those assets, incentivize preservation, and educate and engage residents and property owners around the importance of preservation.
