Teardowns and McMansions Resource Guide

The National Trust for Historic Preservation has updated its website. The resources available from this one resource are indeed close to the one-stop promise.

Teardowns and McMansions Resource Guide

This resource guide is a one-stop-shop for information on teardowns and the tools that are available for use to best manage this trend. Residents in communities experiencing teardowns want to know what they can do and how to do it. The guide shows how various communities have worked to put in place and adopt tools to manage teardowns and retain the character of historic neighborhoods. Communities from across the country are featured and illustrate the process used, including challenges and innovative approaches. Contact information is provided so you can talk directly with local decision makers and experts.
