TRYON—The N.C. State Preservation office will host a workshop at Tryon Theatre on April 24, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The event will include a small-scale development workshop and historic tax credit training for downtown and neighborhood historic districts.

“Fostering small-scale development is key to creating a strong downtown or neighborhood historic district,” organizers said. A small-scale developer rehabs one building at a time, learning as they go, and completes a custom project with the rehabilitation of each project. These developments translate into new businesses, jobs, and housing units, and most importantly, they catalyze incremental investments in downtowns and neighborhood commercial districts for continued economic growth.”

This training will position Main Street programs, city staff and local economic development staff to better understand the process of using historic tax credits as a funding mechanism to redevelop historic commercial properties, according to the N.C. State Preservation office.

Anyone who supports the redevelopment of historic properties is invited to attend. The cost of the workshop is $25. For more information, visit
