Dear Mr. President

February 19, 2009

, Dear Mr. PresidentRemember my Obama on Preservation post back in December? Well, it turns out those of you who responded shared some pretty inspirational stories.

Read the follow-up post by Judy Hayward, publisher of Traditional Building, here:

Judy suggests that President Obama make the following list of projects and programs a priority:

  • Reinvest in neighborhood schools
  • Reinvest in infrastructure, public transit and pedestrian ammenities for communities
  • Support education for traditional building craftsmanship
  • Make the tax credits for historic preservation stronger and support states in their efforts to do so
  • Reinvest in our national parks and government buildings

What do you think of Judy’s list? Would you like to see any projects added?
