Historic churches have always been a centerpiece of communities. As many of these structures age and as congregations evolve, owners of these sacred spaces are often left with challenging decisions about the future of these buildings.
Today, congregations and municipalities are often faced with questions about how to reactivate these aging but important structures. While challenging, there are great examples of adaptive reuse and creative partnerships that ensure that these sites remain significant contributors to their communities and the urban fabric.
What opportunities can occur in Central PA with these spaces? How can the private sector play a part in finding the highest and best uses? This forum will dig into these issues with both a keynote presentation from Partners for Sacred Places and will also include several unique case studies that illustrate exciting new lives for these important structures. The event will help attendees think of new and innovative ways to keep these neighborhood institutions as a vibrant part of our cities and boroughs.
