The Borough of Sewickley and Big Pine Consultants, LLC, invite you to celebrate historic preservation in the village on Saturday, November 18th from 11 am - 2 pm.
Just like archaeologists and preservationists, attendees will use their own phone or iPad to download the Survey123 app and help record our built environment - the buildings, parks and features which make up our community. Learn about the history of Sewickley, share the stories about your favorite places and spaces in our community and participate in the Borough’s first cultural landscape inventory.
This is a family friendly, young adult, seasoned adult, all ages welcome event! Meet at the Borough Building, dress for the weather and wear walking shoes for a stroll around a block or two.
The Borough of Sewickley received a grant to conduct a cultural landscape survey via the Certified Local Government (CLG) program. The CLG program offers municipalities funding sources and technical assistance to strengthen local historic preservation standards. This upcoming comprehensive project will encompass all architecture, parks, cemeteries, and other cultural resources, updating the previous 1982 architectural survey. The objective is to establish new standards, in collaboration with the community, for balanced development alongside historic preservation.
The anonymous survey below will allow the Borough to hear insights and opinions directly from you, the Borough residents, property owners and visitors. Please join us at the 2nd public meeting so we can hear more from you and discuss the next steps. Meeting TBD but will happen early January 2024. Stay tuned for details!
Hard copies of this survey are available at the Borough Building and Library. Hard copies may be dropped off at the Borough Building in the Green Box in the vestibule.
Thank you for your participation!
