The Preservation League of New York is seeking nominations from local and regional preservation organizations, advocacy groups, municipalities and others for its 2018-19 list of New York State's most endangered places – Seven to Save.
Since 1999, the Preservation League has highlighted New York's threatened historic sites through its Seven to Save list. The program provides enhanced services from the League to bolster visibility and build support for preservation.
"Through our partnership with concerned groups and individuals, the threats to dozens of at-risk buildings, landscapes, downtowns, and neighborhoods have been reduced and in many cases eliminated by a Seven to Save designation and subsequent actions," said Preservation League President Jay DiLorenzo. "The League is looking forward to providing strategic attention, extra effort, and new tools to secure the future of New York State's endangered resources for generations to come."
The League is looking for places that could benefit from the additional attention that Seven to Save designation brings.
Program goals are to:
• Spotlight important threatened historic buildings, structures, landscapes and communities;
• Generate enthusiasm for the protection and reuse of threatened sites;
• Identify options for the viable use of threatened sites;
• Focus public attention on key statewide preservation issues;
• Demonstrate the economic and community-building benefits of historic preservation;
• Provide guidance, strategies and tools to alleviate threats to at-risk sites.
For more information about nominating sites and to request an application, call Preservation League Vice President Erin Tobin at (518) 462-5658, ext. 12, or via email at email@example.com.
The deadline for nomination is Oct. 16.
