The Portland Historic Landmarks Commission (PHLC) will be presenting their State of the City Preservation Report 2014 to City Council July 31st. A key priority for the PHLC and focus of the presentation will be protection and prevention of loss in our residential neighborhoods. Several organizations and individuals will be testifying regarding the demolition epidemic and related historic preservation issues. The public is encouraged to attend and show their support and numbers. Please help us make an impact!

Note: The Commission is hoping that a lot of people will attend this, even if they are not designated speakers, so that the City Council can see a big crowd of concerned citizens filling the room. The Landmarks Commission might ask for the people who are there specifically because they are concerned about demolitions to stand up, or something along those lines, to reinforce the message to City Council.
