Saturday, May 13, 3-5 PM
Guest Speaker Peggy Moretti from Restore Oregon will be discussing Historic Conservation Easements at our Annual Membership Meeting.
What is a Preservation Easement?
A preservation easement is a legally binding agreement to protect a historic property from activities that may harm the property’s integrity, including neglect, demolition, and insensitive alterations. A preservation easement allows the owner of a historic property to retain title and use of the property and, at the same time, ensure its long-term preservation.
Join us on Saturday to learn more.
