Proceedings of the Alexandria Historic Preservation Conference and Town Meeting

May 4th and 5th 2007

The first Alexandria Historic Preservation Conference and Town Meeting took place on May 4th and 5th at three different sites across the city. The Conference was sponsored jointly by the City of Alexandria and the Historic Alexandria Foundation and featured presentations by nationally recognized historic preservation and restoration experts. Additional funding for the Conference was provided by the Greater Alexandria Preservation Alliance and several anonymous donors. There were over 200 registrants for the event; their evaluations proclaimed it a great success.

The organizing committee for the Conference is continuing to meet as it prepares an Action Plan for preservation initiatives in the city. This plan will be published on our website once it is finalized. We encourage you to return to this site on a regular basis for updates.
