A good resource

As residents of an historic neighborhood we all have at least some interest in preservation.

The Economics of Historic Preservation: A Community Leader’s Guide, by Donovan D. Rypkema, looks like a great resource for those who are or who would like to be active in preservation. To quote from Amazon:

Since it was first published in 1994, The Economics of Historic Preservation: A Community Leader’s Guide has become an essential reference for any preservationist faced with convincing government officials, developers, property owners, business and community leaders, or his or her own neighbors that preservation strategies can make good economic sense.

The 2005 update is available on Amazon and perhaps locally.
