Many of us know that the promise of new technology could lead to a more sustainable world. But what place do older buildings hold in helping create green communities?
On Thursday night, Lynne Zollner, a historic resource administrator for the city of Lawrence, will address that question.
During the seminar, Zollner will cover the preservation of historic structures and how they can be a key component of a sustainable community. Preserving old buildings enhances a community’s cultural, environmental and economic resources, Zollner believes.
The program will begin at 5:30 p.m. Thursday in the Carnegie Building, Ninth and Vermont streets.
