APA awards Warren for preservation plan

Posted 12/16/11

WARREN – The town’s new Historic Preservation Plan has received the 2011 Current Topic Award from the American Planning Association’s Rhode Island chapter.

The plan was a collaborative effort between the town and eight Roger Williams University students who began work on the project in January and presented the 192-page to town officials in May.

The project involved an analysis of previous 1975 historic plan, surveys of residents, public forums and meetings with local stakeholders. The team examined local historic assets, reviewed policies and actions aimed at preserving historic structures and architecture. The historic plan will be used as the town begins to develop a new Community Comprehensive Plan.

“In addition to being an all-around well-developed plan, the Historic Preservation Plan for the Town of Warren is noted for its significant public input process and involvement as well as its consideration of the study area both as a district and for the individual structures within that district,” said Meredith E. Brady of APA Rhode Island.
