Charleston to Update its Preservation Strategy

2 posts in this topic

The city wants to update is preservation strategy to reflect the current wave of growth and development in the Charleston region. The new plan not only will look at the existing historic district but also could address the city's early 20th century neighborhoods, the redevelopment planned in the Charleston Neck area and rural landscapes in Cainhoy and Johns Island. It could recommend new rules and new incentives. The Historic Charleston Foundation urged the city to revise its plan in the wake of two recent debates - the design, size and location of a new Clemson University architecture center in historic Charleston and a proposal for an eight-story hotel next to the Old Citadel building on Marion Square.

I'm interested to see how Charleston, the birthplace of the historic preservation movement in America, deals with the suburbs from the 1950's onward that now qualify for NRHP status... the agre requirement is 50 years.
