Learn how you can benefit from Historic Tax Credits at free workshop Downtown

post by Billie Owens in events

Learn how you can benefit from Historic Tax Credits and other funding sources to rehab your home, business or historic barn at a free workshop at GO ART! on Tuesday, March 24.

The presentation will begin at 6 p.m. at Seymour Place, 201 E. Main St. in Downtown Batavia. It is hosted by the Landmark Society of Genesee County in conjunction with Buffalo-based Preservation Studio.

The business is a full-service historic building rehabilitation consultant. They are able to assist with the Historic Credit Application Process, help registering a historic property or district, adaptive re-uses, project management, building surveys, and the creation of financial proformas. They are currently working with the Village of Le Roy to create a designated historic district downtown.

Historic preservation is an important tool which can help strengthen our community through: closing the gap in financing that often restricts redeveloping local businesses (economic development); promoting sustainable living; and expressing your community's heritage and civic pride.

Tuesday's presentation is also in association with the Batavia Downtown Improvement District and SUNY GCC's The BEST Center, and the county planning department.

For more information or to RSVP, please contact Derik Kane, Genesee County Planning Department. Phone 815-7901 or e-mail   [email protected]
