Rethinking Institutional Properties

Join us for a discussion on how to embrace our past and invest in our future by adapting former institutional properties for new purposes. When institutional buildings and grounds are no longer needed, they can be successfully transformed into residences and businesses that enliven the surrounding community while preserving the architectural character and heritage of landmark places in our neighborhoods. This collaborative process offers an opportunity for municipalities and developers to plan ahead and meet challenges creatively. This eventwill examine successful case studies of institutional adaptive reuse in the county and provide guidelines that can be used by communities to plan for and achieve transformative reuse. It is being provided as part of Planning Smarter Montco 2016, a Montgomery County initiative offering planning education and outreach. The topic corresponds to the Vibrant Economy theme in Montco 2040: A Shared Vision, Montgomery County's new, nationally awarded comprehensive plan. Register today!
