2012 Economics Benefits Report

Preservation Pennsylvania offers Policy Recommendations to Strengthen the Power of Preservation as a companion report to the Economic Benefits of Historic Preservation Activities in Pennsylvania released by the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission.

Historic preservation has a demonstrated positive impact on economic development efforts at the state and local levels. It is not simply a matter of aesthetics or quality of life, but also a tool for neighborhood stabilization and community revitalization that is connected to broader strategies of land use, smart growth and job creation. These Policy Recommendations focus on three key areas: the establishment of a state historic tax credit that would work in tandem with the Federal program; reinvestment in traditional central business districts and neighborhoods; and coordinated support of heritage tourism. Historic preservation should be embedded in future planning and economic development efforts through the state, counties and municipalities.
