Abstract and Keywords

This article discusses historic preservation, one of the key goals of urban planning. It explains that the intention of contemporary historic preservation is to preserve landscapes that are perhaps less aesthetic, yet representative of, various periods of urban development, which makes for an emotional connection with the lives of the community members who lived through their history, and who remember their history in that place. The article identifies the problems related to the preservation of historic buildings and describes how preservation planning has expanded from architecture to landscape, and how it became an avenue for economic development rather than its antithesis.

Keywords: historic preservation, urban planning, urban development, history, historic buildings, preservation planning, economic development
