preservation guidelines

The publication I developed for the Historic Preservation Commission and the Historic Review Board has its print version as a PDF but this electronic version loads much more quickly over the Danish service

This file is an illustrated book of guidelines for historic preservation in Saugerties. It matches history to homes and buildings from different periods and recommends ways for their safekeeping.

This is a project that began in commemoration of the 200th anniversary of the town of Saugerties in 2011.

These guidelines cover the town and village of Saugerties as separately certified federal and state heritage communities. They are reviewed for accuracy by the Certified Local Government (CLG) program under the New York State Historic Preservation Officer (SHPO).

This "weblet" introduces this work within a broader series of web products that distribute a portfolio of publications I'm creating to interprete the history of Saugerties.

This is a web production of Michael Sullivan Smith. It's distributed free of commercial or government platforms from the Cloud. If you find it informative you may be a patron by visiting the link on this introduction page. There you will find a list of interesting creations such as this to add to your electronic collection.

The file burns a lot of bandwidth every time it is pulled down from the cloud. Patrons help me pay for this service so that you can save this file from the cloud into your computer. The PDF from this streaming file can be downloaded to your computer. The only good thing to come out of commercial dominance of the Internet is the power it needed in your personal computer to pull off this dominance. Please use what you have and save energy. Save the PDF to your computer if you're going to study this file.
