Your donation helps Village Preservation prevent inappropriate development, expand landmark protection, and conduct and create programming and research that promotes our neighborhood’s unique history and built environment.

Take Action on an Advocacy Campaign

Village Preservation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. If you have questions or concerns, please contact us.

Take Action

You can support an advocacy campaign by signing one (or more) of our letters to to government officials and other decision-makers.

We advocate for expanded landmark and zoning protections to help preserve the historic buildings, scale, and balance of uses in our neighborhood while fighting against development which is inappropriate in terms of design or character.  We support local small businesses and cultural institutions, and promote policies that help them succeed.  We inform the public of important decisions being made which affect development and preservation in our neighborhoods and how they can affect the outcome, and of the positions and actions of elected and government officials in relation to them.


Village Preservation is always looking for volunteers to assist with public programs, research, evening and weekend events, mailings and general office work, and other special projects. There are many ways to support our work, and we are glad to discuss your skills and how these can best help our work. Get in touch, and thanks!
