As a part of our field service outreach, Missouri Preservation along with the city of Jackson sponsored an evening workshop on Missouri’s Historic Preservation Tax Credit in November 2017. Conducted by Missouri Preservation’s executive director Bill Hart, the seminar concentrated on basics of the state’s program incentives for the reuse and renovation of historic buildings for modern uses. A brief history of the program was presented, along with numbers detailing the economic stimulus the program has brought to communities statewide through private investment in building improvements, contribution to quality of life, job production and tax base building. Other topics included documenting existing conditions an finished product, planning the work, categorizing and documenting expenses, design issues and standards for the treatment of historic properties in the renovation process.
