This January 20 at 6 pm: CR0WD!

PACNY is proud to present a free virtual event – CR0WD: a Coalition of Preservationists, Planners, and Architects to Promote Circularity and Reuse

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the United States generated 600 million tons of construction and demolition debris in 2018, making it the largest single component of landfill waste (40%). Sadly, the vast majority of construction debris (90%) results from demolition rather than new construction. As preservationists, our primary efforts are directed at saving buildings and promoting adaptive reuse. But what role can we play in advocating for a more sustainable future when it comes to demolition? How can we address the issue of demolition debris and waste through deconstruction and reuse? The panelists, all members of the recently created working group known as CR0WD (Circularity, Reuse and Zero Waste Development), will discuss their collaboration and goals along with their research and advocacy efforts.

Presenters will include Bryan McCracken, Historic Preservation and Neighborhood Planner, City of Ithaca; Jennifer Minner, Associate Professor, City and Regional Planning and Director of Just Places Lab, Cornell University; Gretchen Worth, Project Director, Susan Christopherson Center for Community Planning; and Susan Holland, Executive Director of Historic Ithaca, Inc.
