As a Certified Local Government, the City of Tulsa has been allocated $15,000 for the 2016-2017 Fiscal Year to foster development of historic preservation. This grant must be matched on a 60% Federal/40%Non-Federal basis.
This year’s projects developed with these funds include the publication of the Historic Preservation Zoning Flyer for owners of property in Historic Preservation Overlay Districts and the Education Series, which features a series of lectures on topics such as sustainable design, historic preservation tax credits, and heritage tourism. Among the activities under consideration for next year are
Bob Yapp’s Window Restoration Boot Camp
“An intense, learn-by-doing opportunity” with instruction in sash, paint, and glass removal, wood repair, and weather-stripping
Hands-on instruction in repointing mortar, epoxy wood repair, and plaster repair
Proposals for next year’s projects will be reviewed at the Regular Meeting of the Tulsa Preservation Commission at 11:00 A.M. on Thursday, April 14, in the Tenth Floor – North Conference Room in Tulsa City Hall. If you cannot attend, please direct any comments or proposals to Jed Porter, Historic Preservation Officer, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
