A CONCERNED CITIZEN’S GUIDE TO GETTING INVOLVED IN PRESERVATION

Concerned citizens frequently ask us how they can get involved in preservation. We suggest you:

Learn about Palm Springs’ “built environment.”

  Join PSPF and get email updates on preservation issues!
  Read PSPF’s on-line Class 1: A Guide to the Designated Class 1 Historic Sites of Palm Springs.
  Read about the city’s history and architecture. Some wonderful sources (most available at the local library) include: Palm Springs: First Hundred Years, by Frank M. Bogert, Palm Springs Weekend: The Architecture and Design of a Midcentury Oasis, by Alan Hess and Andrew Danish & Julius Shulman: Palm Springs, by Michael Stern and Alan Hess

Better understand Palm Springs local government and draw your own conclusions about who in local government supports the goals of preservation.

  Attend or watch on television city council meetings (broadcast on PEG Channel 121 television locally).
  Attend or watch on television Planning Commission meetings.
  Attend an Architectural Advisory Committee meeting (unfortunately not televised).
  Attend or watch on television a Historic Site Preservation Board (HSPB) meeting.

Advocate

  Write a pro-preservation “letter to the editor” to the local newspaper.
  Make a public comment on a preservation issue of importance to you during a Palm Springs city council meeting, a Planning Commission meeting, an Architectural Advisory Committee meeting or a Historic Site Preservation Board meeting.
  Attend a PSPF event.
  Volunteer your time to help with a PSPF event (email us at info@pspreservationfoundation.org to be added to our Volunteer contact list).
  Host or sponsor a PSPF event.
