Community Developers Network: Quarterly Meeting

November 16, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


Many of us know complicated stories of the push and pull involved in rehabbing historic properties, whether it’s installing insulation, replacing windows, dealing with super-wide hallways in old mills or school buildings or other considerations that can cause headaches for architects, developers and contractors as well as historic tax credit staff themselves. Join us for a conversation about design standard challenges and solutions that are part of historic housing rehab projects. Julie Carmelich, Historic Tax Credit Coordinator at the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development, will present some of the standards for rehabilitation set out by the U.S. Secretary of the Interior and will discuss how those standards can best be interpreted (or not). In addition, a response panel representing developers, architects and contractors will talk about the challenges that arise and solutions required to meet the standards and the considerations initially required in taking on an historic tax credit project. Moderating the panel will be Brad Schide, Consultant, Brad Schide, LLC, and sitting on the panel will be Nina Caruso, Architect, Crosskey Architects (Invited), Ted Lazarus, Park Lane Group (Invited), Cathy MacKinnon, Mutual Housing Association of    Greater Hartford (Invited) and Kent Schwendy, Corporation for Independent Living.
