It’s a spooky time of the year, just perfect for an evening hike. Fading light makes seeing more challenging, so we’ll need to rely on our other senses.

Registration is limited to 25 people. Meet at parking lot #2.

October 26, 2016, 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM @ Ambler Borough Hall (Council Chambers)
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 session will 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.
