Threatened Properties

The Eight That Can’t Wait

PACNY’s annual threatened properties list, the Eight That Can’t Wait, is a primary program of the association’s preservation advocacy mission. The purpose of the list is to raise public awareness about historic resources in the five-county Central New York region that are threatened by issues such as neglect, redevelopment, natural disasters, and inappropriate alterations. Threatened property lists are a common program among preservation advocacy organizations and include the National Trust’s “Eleven Most Endangered” list at the national level, and the Preservation League of New York State’s “Seven to Save” at the state level. In addition to raising public awareness through traditional and social media outlets, PACNY will also track progress on the endangered properties and offer technical assistance to property owners and community members to help achieve a positive outcome.

A call for nominations to the 2019 list of threatened properties will be announced to the PACNY membership next spring.
