Dear Mr. President

February 19, 2009

Remember 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:

http://www.traditional-building.com/Previous-Issues-09/FebruaryForum09.html

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?
