Phoenix may not be oldest city in this state but it's not without its history. Sadly, that history is often torn down to make way for cookie cutter housing developments and stucco strip malls. That's why Preserve Phoenix, a volunteer-led, nonprofit organization that advocates for the preservation of historic buildings in Phoenix, is putting together a plan to keep the city's heritage intact.
But they can't do it alone.
On Tuesday, April 1, at 7 p.m. inside Burton Barr Central Library, Preserve Phoenix will host a free, open to the public meeting, led by the City of Phoenix Historic Preservation Office and Commission.
