Douglas Appler, the Helen Edwards Abell Endowed Chair in Historic Preservation, presented a paper at the Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning conference in Salt Lake City, UT on Oct. 15 titled, “Planning, Place and Archaeology: Understanding the role of City Archaeology Programs in the Effort to Create Meaningful Places.” The paper was featured in the session “Culture and Planning.” It explored how three cities have modified their local planning regulations to retrieve the archaeological information contained by building sites slated for development, and then how that information was used by members of the surrounding communities to create meaningful urban spaces. The paper was based on his dissertation research.
