Historic Tax Credit Update:  

Response to Anticipated Tax Reform

On February 26, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) released a discussion draft of his comprehensive Tax Reform Act of 2014. This proposal would repeal the Historic Tax Credit (HTC) program from the tax code. This credit's proposed elimination presents the greatest threat the Historic Tax Credit has faced since 1986, when Congress last enacted comprehensive tax reform. The National Trust responded immediately to the news, releasing a statement to the public that stressed the importance of retaining the Historic Tax Credit, sending a letter to every member of the House of Representatives asking for improvements instead of elimination of the HTC, and distributing a stakeholder sign-on letter with over 300 signatories to Congress. During Historic Preservation Advocacy Week in early March, National Trust for Historic Preservation staff joined local preservation advocates, including Cleveland Restoration Society President Kathleen H. Crowther, for meetings with members of Congress and their staff. During these meetings, advocates described the importance of HTC projects to community revitalization, expressed strong concerns about Chairman Camp's draft proposal to repeal the credit, and urged members to support the improvement rather than the elimination of the historic tax credit (the Historic Preservation Fund and the Congressional Historic Preservation Caucus were also topics of discussion). While there is only a remote chance of tax reform happening in this Congress, you can still vocalize your support for the HTC, in order to help retain the federal government's most significant contribution to historic preservation.

Antiquities Act of 1906 Threatened

Late in March, we told you on CRS's Facebook page about the threat to the Antiquities Act of 1906 through H.R. 1459, the "Ensuring Public Involvement in the Creation of National Monument Act." The Antiquities Act of 1906 is our first preservation law and our best tool for protecting historic and cultural resources on public land. H.R. 1459's title is misleading, because what the legislation actually proposed was to curtail the President's ability to act swiftly to establish or expand the designation of national monuments on federally owned or controlled property in order to protect sites, objects, and landscapes of historic, cultural, or scientific interest. Many of today's national parks were first protected by presidents as national monuments under the Antiquities Act - places such as the Grand Canyon, Statue of Liberty, Acadia, Zion, Grand Teton, and the Olympic National Parks. Unfortunately, the House voted 222-201 to pass the legislation, mostly along party lines with 10 Republicans crossing over to oppose the bill and three Democrats voting favorably. The vote on this bill marks the one year anniversary of President Obama protecting the Charles Young Buffalo Soldiers National Monument in Ohio.  When Congress failed to pass bipartisan legislation conserving Colonel Young's historic home in Wilberforce, President Obama used his pen and executive authority to honor this African-American leader and pioneer in U.S. Military history. Colonel Young would go on to serve as the nation's first African-American national park superintendent. Now the bill moves over to the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, and then possibly on to the full Senate for consideration. The National Trust has recently posted five reasons to support the Antiquities Act of 1906. Read more here. You may have another chance to make your voice heard in advocating for the Antiquities Act. We'll keep you posted.

 

   

Transportation Update:  

Preserving & Advocating for Section 4(f)

From the National Trust comes an update on activities regarding section 4(f) of the Department of Transportation Act of 1966.  Section 4(f) is the nation's strongest preservation law and it requires that federally funded transportation projects must avoid disrupting historic sites and other protected resources, unless there is "no feasible and prudent alternative" and all "possible planning to minimize harm" has been utilized. During debate of the current transportation bill, MAP-21, the National Trust and its partners successfully fought back efforts to remove section 4(f) protection for historic resources. MAP-21 sunsets on October 1, 2014, and Congress is now preparing to reauthorize the transportation bill, with debate of the legislation scheduled to begin later this spring.  National Trust President Stephanie Meeks recently met with Congressmen Bill Shuster and Thomas Petri, chairmen of House transportation committees, to discuss the National Trust's priorities for the reauthorization of the transportation bill. In addition to preserving section 4(f), the National Trust also advocates for surveys of historic resources to be incorporated early in the transportation planning process, a practice that improves efficiency and avoids costly delays. The National Trust is using best-practice case studies of states, such as Florida's Efficient Transportation Decision-Making (ETDM) tool, to highlight the benefits of this practice to Members of Congress. For more details, email Adam Jones at ajones@savingplaces.org.

 

   

New Report on Rightsizing

The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) has released its report, Managing Change: Preservation and Rightsizing in America. This report takes a fresh look at rightsizing from a historic preservation perspective by highlighting historic preservation strategies, which are often overlooked by local decision makers. Key findings of the report:

  • The Federal Historic Preservation Tax Incentives Program is an important program that has been instrumental in the preservation and redevelopment of the core areas and mixed-use historic neighborhoods in legacy cities.
  • Section 106 of the NHPA is an important planning process that engages diverse stakeholders to inform decision making and limit adverse effects on historic properties.
  • Federal programs that are targeted to demolition do not always reflect the preferences of the residents of the community, especially when they are seeking historic preservation options.
  • Rightsizing, sustainability, and historic preservation are often considered separate policy issues.

While the report focuses on legacy cities-older industrial cities undergoing dramatic change-its findings and recommendations are relevant to any city or town that exhibits rightsizing characteristics. It offers community leaders, local stakeholders, and government agencies valuable suggestions on using historic preservation tools and techniques that have proven effective in managing change and building strong, resilient communities. The report is available for download here.

 

The report also includes case studies of how federal resources have helped revitalize neighborhoods. Do you have a success story to share? The ACHP intends to showcase innovative approaches to rightsizing in affected communities. Please share your cases studies and best practices with the ACHP by emailing rightsizing@achp.gov.

 

 

Cuyahoga Land Bank Awarded Millions for Demolition

On February 28, the Ohio Housing Finance Agency (OHFA) announced that eleven land banks in Ohio, including the Cuyahoga Land Bank, would share $50 million in federal funds to demolish vacant and abandoned one - four unit residential structures. The Cuyahoga Land Bank received 20% of the total funds awarded, or $10.1 million. It is estimated that 800 residential properties will be demolished under the Cuyahoga Land Bank's Neighborhood Initiative Program (NIP) between April 2014 and June 2016. The NIP was developed by OHFA in collaboration with Senators Sherrod Brown and Rob Portman, Governor Kasich, and the land banks to stabilize property values by removing and greening vacant and blighted properties in targeted areas in an effort to prevent future foreclosures for existing homeowners. In 2013, Jim Rokakis, director of the Thriving Communities Institute, identified unused federal Hardest Hit Funding as a possible source of demolition funding. The Cleveland Restoration Society is finalizing a contract to provide historic preservation consultation services to the Thriving Communities Institute on a pilot basis in the Mt. Pleasant, Buckeye -Woodhill and Buckeye-Shaker neighborhoods. CRS Preservation Services staff will help identify historic resources in these neighborhoods and review potential demolitions to insure that resources with architectural merit are considered for rehabilitation or mothballing. More information on this project will be forthcoming in future issues of Perspectives.

 

 

   

CRS Participates on Panel About Value of Preservation  

in African-American Communities

The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP), the National Trust for Historic Preservation, and the African American Experience Fund of the National Park Foundation, together with American Express, had the opportunity to participate on a panel to discuss the value of historic preservation in African-American communities at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation's 2013 Annual Legislative Conference last fall.  "Preserving African American Historic Places: Breathing New Life into Our Communities" featured several leaders in historic preservation and history. This opportunity followed a meeting Dr. Clement A Price, ACHP Vice Chairman attended, as well as John Hairston, Cleveland Restoration Society Trustee Bracy Lewis, and CBC Chair Marcia Fudge. The panel of distinguished preservation leaders conveyed to an overflowing room that preserving historic properties revitalizes African-American neighborhoods, spurs economic vitality, creates job growth and establishes a link to the past that provides communities with their own unique identity.  Local examples provided were from Cleveland. The panel discussed how historic preservation tools support economic, educational and cultural renewal in the nation's African-American communities.

 

 

   

Junction Earthworks

Ross County  

Hopewell Earthworks Saved From Auction

The Junction Earthworks in Chillicothe is one of the last unprotected, intact sites of its kind in Ohio. An auction, scheduled for March 18, was the impetus for a fundraising effort to preserve the 2,000- year old Hopewell complex, which includes a burial ground. The nonprofit Arc of Appalachia Preserve System, founded in 1995, has taken the lead in working to save the earthworks. Following an intensive grassroots campaign, the organization was able to save the entire site except for one farm field, which was the lowest tract on its priority acquisition list, at the March auction. The long-term goal of the Arc of Appalachia is for the site to be added to the Hopewell Culture National Historical Park and for it be nominated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. For more information about Junction Earthworks, click here.

Tower East Office Building Listed in National Register of Historic Places

The architectural significance of Tower East, the twelve- story office building located at 20600 Chagrin Boulevard, Shaker Heights, has now been recognized through official listing in the National Park Service's National Register of Historic Places. Designed by master architect Walter Gropius and completed in 1968, it is the only building by the famed architect in Ohio and the first constructed between New York and Chicago. The exposed exterior concrete and modular, grid-like appearance of Tower East's fašade reflect the functional modern aesthetic of the International Style of architecture. Mayor Earl M. Leiken notes, "The City of Shaker Heights is very pleased that the Tower East building designed by Walter Gropius is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This architecturally significant building is also a key anchor in the new Van Aken District. The owners, Rosemont Realty and Equity Engineering, have made a major investment in this great building, which will ensure its quality well into the future."

Cozad-Bates House

Art to Feature Cozad-Bates House

On April 12, artist Kevin Beasley will present a commissioned work for MOCA Cleveland that uses both the museum and the historic Cozad-Bates House, the only surviving pre-Civil War structure in Cleveland's University Circle.

It will be presented as a sequence of four live, multi-channel audio performances at the house, which is located at 11508 Mayfield Road. Each 30-45 minute piece (Civil Twilight I, Transit, Civil Twilight II, and Night) is composed for a specific time, charting the shifting atmosphere over the course of a day.
