Looking Ahead: Preservation in 2030

What will it take to protect the past for the future?

Preservation Vision: NYC is a year-long initiative to engage those interested in preservation in a conversation about their aspirations for preservation in New York City in the year 2030 and the actions needed to make those hopes a reality.

As part of the first phase of the project, a unique, online survey has been launched to gather feedback, ideas and opinions from New Yorkers interested in the future of historic preservation in the city. This online survey provides the best opportunity for all stakeholders to participate; interested citizens, those working directly in historic preservation, and those working in all allied fields (planning, housing, community development, the environment, etc.)

Go to to learn more and take the survey.

Become a part of this historic effort by providing your most candid and considered observations about the effectiveness and potential of historic preservation in New York City.

This project is the initiative of a group of New York City charitable funders with a long-standing interest in the preservation sector and is managed by the non-profit organization, Minerva Partners. Preservation Vision is funded in part by generous gifts from The New York Community Trust, New York State Council on the Arts, the Robert Sterling Clark Foundation, The Gerry Charitable Trust, The National Trust for Historic Preservation, The 42nd Street Fund and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund.
