is to encourage economic development within the context of historic
preservation in ways appropriate to today’s marketplace.

community self-reliance, and the rebuilding of traditional commercial
districts based on their unique assets: distinctive architecture, a
pedestrian-friendly environment, personal service, local ownership, and a
sense of community.
