Historic Preservation & Rehabilitation Creating Meaningful Collaboration NKY Restoration Weekend 2012

Creating Meaningful Community Participation & Small Business Collaboration through Preservation Partnerships in Education Events. NKY Restoration was formed as an unincorporated association and collaboration of individuals who represent businesses, artisans, craftsman, non-profit organizations, cities and the local Historic Preservation offices in Northern Kentucky and the Urban Cincinnati region. Through our collaborative efforts between neighboring cities, local small businesses, and local non-profits we have annually been able to successfully educate the public about historic preservation and healthy Do it Yourself practices. In doing so we are successful at promoting local vendors, craftsman and small business growth in the host and surrounding communities by connecting homeowners with local thought leaders, contractors and local craftsman with the appropriate CLG offices. Our partnerships have allowed our community members and outreach partners to proactively support healthy local sustainable historical communities. Our ongoing efforts have encouraged/educated others in making an investment contributing to the promotion & preservation of their communities’ makeup and individual nuances. This year we are anticipating further growth as we have added a Professional Track offering CEU's to applicable trades through our extended partnerships to regional US Green Builders Councils (USGBC Cincinnati and USGBC KY) as well as national Building and Construction Trade Groups which has allowed us to offer sustainable education to our community. In doing so NKY Restoration is bridging the gap between the people who live in historical communities and the professional building & architectural community that is called upon to serve its needs. NKY Restoration: our vision, create a platform with a focus on education for community stakeholders, professionals and the small businesses who care for these historical architectural treasures. We seek to proactively support local sustainable historical communities making an investment; contributing to the promotion & preservation of their makeup and nuances.
