Students examined preservation opportunities within Leander’s
institutional context, providing student preservationists with an
opportunity to apply their tools of practice. Their work included an
exploration of federal, state and local governments, non-governmental
institutions, and private sector support systems.
Students developed tools for implementing preservation policy and
programs that fit into Leander’s larger vision for the city, economic
development plans, and regional efforts. This work included an inventory
of Leander’s historic assets, a marketing strategy to get the word out,
historic preservation design guidelines, and funding opportunities to assist
in development of a downtown historic district.
