REVIEW 2015 UTAH PRESERVATION CONFERENCE

Vivian Talbot reported on the Preservation in Motion Conference she attended on March 12th and 13th in Salt Lake City.  The 25th Street historic preservation work that took place several years ago in Ogden was highlighted, along with the old stock yards that were also renovated. The Historic 25th Street Association is dedicated to local and independent businesses. The success of this historic district is based on communication standards that establish legitimacy and guidelines, and political engagement. Along with the renovated buildings, the Historic District also embraces “the uglies” that are still there, and have made them a part of the neighborhood. The Landmarks Commission discussed asking Kim Bowsher, from the Historic 25th Street Association, to speak at their Preservation Conference in November.
