Austin – Old Buildings in a Changing Austin: Historic Preservation, Density, and Affordability

September 25 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Historic preservation is used across the country to support small businesses, provide affordable housing, and preserve community heritage. But what is its role in Austin, where a booming economy is spurring calls for higher-density development and production of housing on a much larger scale?

Dr. Mike Powe from the National Trust for Historic Preservation will discuss how older, smaller, mixed-age buildings in Austin relate to housing affordability and economic vitality as our city grows.

This event is free and open to the public and city staff
