Preservation League annual meeting

The Preservation League of Evanston will hold its annual meeting at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 15, at the restaurant Quince in the Homestead Hotel at 1625 Hinman Ave.

Victoria Granacki, of Granacki Historic Consultants, will speak on the value of historic districts.

The Preservation League of Evanston was founded in 1979 as a voluntary community-wide advocacy organization to preserve the architectural and visual character of the city.

The League has been reestablished to pursue these goals. It seeks to maintain a complementary yet separate relationship with the Evanston Preservation Commission and to encourage cooperation with other governmental agencies as well as historic and civic organizations.

The group seeks to:

  • Raise the public’s awareness of and appreciation for the special character and architectural heritage of Evanston
  • Encourage participation in preservation and conservation issues and activities
  • Promote preservation, conservation and sustainability as considerations in private, public and institutions planning for contemporary needs
  • Identify, study, and publicize developments which may affect preservation in Evanston and help formulate solutions
  • Restore, rehabilitate or maintain sites and structures of historic or architectural significance
