Historic Preservation Professor Doug Appler will be giving a talk entitled "Affordable Housing in National Register Districts: Mapping the Advantages of Historic Urban Neighborhoods" at the 43rd Urban Affairs Association conference in San Francisco.
Using the cities of Louisville and Covington as examples, Professor Appler will discuss the recent recognition of the intersection of modern public housing policy with the historic building stock found in many older U.S. cities and opportunities for innovation by the housing advocacy and historic preservation communities. Some of those opportunities become more readily apparent, however, when the relationship between housing needs and historic urban fabric is explored from a spatial perspective.
The Urban Affairs Association (UAA) is the international professional organization for urban scholars, researchers, and public service professionals. The 43rd Urban Affairs Association conference will be held April 3-6 in San Francisco.
