PAF and the Philadelphia Historic Preservation Task Force
City of Philadelphia Mayor Kenney has created a historic preservation task force to help the City reassess how Philadelphia preserves its historic resources. The task force will explore strategies and make recommendations regarding:

• Surveying historic resources
• Incentivizing preservation
• Regulating for preservation outcomes
• Education

The task force includes experts in historic preservation, development, archaeology, land use and architecture. It also includes community members to ensure that our neighborhoods are represented. Philadelphiha Archaeological Forum President Douglas Mooney was appointed to this Task Force
