Broward Trust for Historic Preservation
Michaela M. Conca
As president of Broward Trust for Historic Preservation, Michaela advocates for all historic resources in Broward County; she believes these resources contribute to Broward County neighborhoods for future growth.
Homeowners sometimes are unaware that their historic property is eligible for financial help. Our responsibility is to educate our community about these resources and the hidden benefits of preserving our historic resources. These benefits counterbalance the assumed burden to property owners.
The property or landmarks are assets, and historic preservation is an intrinsic component that enhances our county for future development strategies. In turn, the homeowner’s property and its value are protected. One aspect of this protection is a landmark historic designation. These historical landmarks and designations further enhance the history of our communities and protect these assets for future generations. When a property is designated, it enhances and contributes to our sustainable resiliency and goals for the years ahead, creating a sense of place and time based on the county’s history.
