Bill seeks to fix Oregon’s “worst practice” historic preservation system

PORTLAND, Ore. - Oregon’s system for protecting its historic places and investing in their restoration and reuse is considered “worst practice” in the U.S. by national leaders in the preservation movement. Two bills introduced by the Senate Environment and Natural Resources Committee on Tuesday are intended to fix that, according to their supporters.

The legislation would help curb demolitions, promote restoration, seismic upgrades, and conversion of old buildings into housing, and engage local communities in decisions about what should be protected in their community.
