#SaveATL: Place-Based Preservation Advocacy

#SaveATL is Historic Atlanta’s program aimed at raising awareness and providing technical assistance for the preservation of historic places associated with underrepresented communities and/ or considered a Preservation Accountability Issue.

Historic Atlanta understands that Atlanta’s historic places can be threatened for a wide variety of issues.  Through the program, Historic Atlanta evaluates the needs of enrolled sites on a case-by-case basis and commits to do our part in the preservation of these places in the form of assistance with historic markers; local Landmark designations, National Register of Historic Places nominations, conservation assessments, preservation guidance & mediation, Historic Structure Reports, legislative advocacy, Legacy Business Designations, and activism/ site-activation.

Nomination Process:
