Project Overview
Partner Organizations: Kasson Alliance for Restoration, Mantorville Restoration Association, Friends of Mayowood, Denmark Township Historical Society, Friends of Saint Rose, Preservation Lake City, County Historical Societies, Red Wing Downtown Main Street, Winona Main Street, Winona Area Chamber of Commerce, Faribault Main Street, and Faribault Area Chamber of Commerce and Tourism PAM will work to provide its partners with staff support, administration, supervision, and additional preservation and planning expertise. There are two phases associated with this grant: a nine-month planning stage resulting in a strategic plan, and a three-month phase to develop partnership documents for the interested partners. As envisioned, SEMPP will strengthen these organizations by providing direct support to ongoing preservation efforts. SEMPP will increase awareness of historic preservation's role to build communities, promote shared values, and develop local economies through hands-on preservation advocacy, community/economic development, partnership building, community organizing, and campaign management. The lasting goals of this 13-county planning initiative are to build an ongoing presence in the region that will achieve incremental preservation outcomes and ultimately create a partnership model that can be exported to other parts of the state. SEMPP will accomplish this mission through the newly hired project coordinator.
