"The preservation of historic buildings is important in maintaining both a city's heritage and its older neighborhoods. With this fact in mind, the SSCRPC has begun to look at the conditions within some older neighborhoods -- particularly what the SSCRPC lerms "Legacy" ones -- to get a better understanding of the factors that mitigate for and against preservation. The SSCRPC believes that identifying the factors that might increase the risk of historic structure loss can go a long way toward developing strategies to mitigate such factors before problems arise. The SSCRPC has just released its first study on this matter, 'Neighborhood Factors that May Affect the Loss of Historic Structures', which takes a preliminary look at identifying common risk factors in some of Springfield's historic neighborhoods. It can be found by clicking HERE."
