Pastries & Preservation-Ready Sites returns to Sweetness 7 on Grant on Thursday, September 25. The event, which kicked-off in early 2012, is sponsored by the Facebook Group, Preservation-Ready Sites, and is an extension of the group’s online activities. Pastries & PRS is a casual, fun way to meet fellow citizens, architects, planners, historians and preservationists who care about the built environment in Western New York.
The format of the bi-monthly meet-up is to begin with a featured speaker. This month’s speaker is Jill Nowicki of the Clinton Brown Company She will speak about Historic Preservation Tax Credits. This is an important topic given the current threat to Federal Historic Preservation Tax Credits as underscored in this Buffalo News editorial, Jill will speak for approximately 20 minutes and a brief Q & A period will follow. You can sign up for the event on Facebook or you can just attend.
Preservation-Ready Sites is an independent/grassroots media watchdog group comprised of citizens interested in architectural preservation and quality new design opportunities in Buffalo, NY. We are NOT another preservation group-we look to collaborate with the other preservation organizations in Buffalo, including Preservation Buffalo Niagara, Campaign for Greater Buffalo, Buffalo Architecture Foundation, Buffalo Young Preservationists, etc. Our mission is to create a media platform/effort that raises public awareness about Buffalo buildings at risk, document issues affecting the status of the buildings, and create calls-to-action to enable the public to get involved.
