Long Island Library Resources Council hosts Sarah Kautz (Preservation Director, Preservation Long Island) “Preservation for the People: An Introduction Local, State & Federal Policies & Practices” 

Did you know listing on the National and State Registers of Historic Places does not protect historic places from demolition or redevelopment? Only municipalities and local preservation ordinances can protect historic places from destruction. Nevertheless, federal and state preservation laws play an important role by offering attractive financial incentives like tax credits, or by requiring a more intensive process of environmental review for some projects. Join Sarah Kautz (Preservation Director, Preservation Long Island) to explore how local, state, and federal laws work together to preserve historic places, and how you can support a more comprehensive approach to preservation in your community. This program is generously hosted by the Long Island Library Resources Council.
