What We Do...
Monitor Local Development
The Preservancy monitors local development projects to ensure full compliance with zoning and historic preservation regulations.
Initiate and Participate in Long-term Planning
We initiate and participate in long-term planning and preservation projects, to ensure that community needs are heard and met, and to protect and enhance Riverdale’s superb natural environment and community character.
We also provide information, through community meetings, written materials, our website, and on social media to enable local residents to be active and engaged in environmental and planning issues.
