“Preservation and reuse of our historic buildings is fundamental to the economic revitalization of our cities, towns, and villages,” said Jay DiLorenzo, president of the Preservation League. “The restoration of our historic neighborhoods, Main Streets, and underutilized buildings continues to create jobs, provide housing, promote tourism, stimulate private investment, and conserve energy, resources, and open space.
