Books Info:

Saving Places That Matter free pdf They're going to wipe out your neighborhood or drive you off your ranch to put in a transit station or a surface mine. How do you stop it? Tom King, renowned expert on the heritage preservation process in the United States, explains to preservationists and other community activists the ins and outs of Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act - the major U.S. law designed to protect historic places and how it can be used to protect special places in your community. King will show you the scope of the law, how it is often misinterpreted or ignored by government agencies and developers, and how to use its provisions to force others to pay attention to your concerns. He explains the quirky role of the National Register of Historic Places and the importance of consultation in getting what you want. King provides you with examples of how people like you can use the Section 106 process to stop wanton development, and encourages you to do the same. King's guide will be a bible for anyone trying to save heritage from destruction.
