You’re invited to join historian & conservationist Elizabeth Blasius and LivingRoom Realty Broker Susannah Ribstein for a discussion on the Chicago Historic Resources Survey (CHRS), the City of Chicago’s primary municipal guide to its historic buildings. We’ll talk about the basics of the Survey, how it’s used, how it affects all Chicagoans, and take a look at some example survey resources in the West Town neighborhood. We’ll conclude with an open discussion on how you think the Survey could be improved.
This event is not just for preservationists! Everyone is invited to attend, especially those interested in:
-Local architecture and history
-Maintenance of diverse and affordable housing stock in Chicago
-Economic potential of neighborhood landmarks
-Trends and concepts in property development & demolition
Space is limited, so please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
