Historic preservation and the green building movement are natural allies: the greenest building, as the saying goes, is the one that is already built. An older building embodies a heavy prior investment in resources and energy; keeping it in use conserves the investment and is recycling at its best.
Preservation Easement Program
For owners concerned about the future of their beloved home, an option for long-term preservation is the donation of a preservation easement to a qualified non-profit like Greater Portland Landmarks.
