Tools for Historic Preservation

Record #:
Understanding legal precedents for historic preservation, specifically highlighting the differences between zoning and easements, is addressed by the author. Zoning refers to government regulation of private property as these affect public health and welfare. Easement recalls older property laws concerning ownership and rights inherent in owning property. For the purpose of historic preservation balance must be determined between the public and private realm of historic properties and how a combination of zoning and easements presents the most beneficial approach to such matters.
