The Secretary’s Standards and Guidelines for Rehabilitating Historic Buildings workshop *Canceled*
May 21, 1:30 p.m.–4:30 p.m.
Due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19, the State Historic Preservation Office has canceled all May workshops. At this time, the December workshops will continue as scheduled. Our office will be working on a virtual workshop should the need arise in December.
The Oklahoma Historical Society State Historic Preservation Office May workshop series will be held May 20–21, 2020, in the Clark and Kay Musser Learning Lab on the first floor of the Oklahoma History Center.
The Secretary’s Standards and Guidelines for Rehabilitating Historic Buildings will be held on Thursday, May 21, from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m.
The workshop features a discussion of the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards and Guidelines for Rehabilitation. Generally known as The Standards, these common-sense principles are widely used in the historic preservation field. Whether pursuing the 20% federal and 20% state tax credits for a certified rehabilitation, planning a rehabilitation project funded with federal assistance, serving on a local historic preservation commission, or rehabilitating your historic private home, you will find the session beneficial. It is designed as a stand-alone workshop and as a companion to Federal and State Tax Incentives for Rehabilitating Historic Buildings.
These workshops are free and open to the public, but we ask that you preregister. Space is limited and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Register online or call 405-521-6249.
Design professionals who attend the workshops will qualify for HSW hours needed to fulfill the requirements of the State of Oklahoma’s Board of Governors of Licensed Architects, Landscape Architects, and Interior Designers. A certificate of attendance will be emailed to participants after the workshops. Self-report your attendance to the board.
