This webinar will give participants an understanding of the relationship between Federal Standards and local design guidelines. We’ll guide attendees through the origin and development of a variety of preservation-based review standards and guidelines. Through case studies, participants will distinguish between the four treatments under the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards, and understand how the treatments work within the framework of local design guidelines. Participants will also compare the application and the inherent flexibility of the Secretary of the Interior’s Guidelines for Rehabilitation.

Participants will: 1) Have a working knowledge of the evolution of design guidelines in preservation theory 2) Understand the four treatments under the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards and how they can influence design guidelines 3) Learn how to apply the inherent flexibility of the Standards for Rehabilitation and understand where there is discretion 4) Discover where to locate additional design guideline resources
