This program features a presentation by Marlys Svendsen, given as part of the November 2014 Sustainability Through Historic Salvage Conference in Iowa City. Marlys Svendsen is a Historic Project Specialist with Iowa Homeland Security & Emergency Management and a Preservation Planning Consultant at Svendsen Tyler, Inc. The 2008 floods across Iowa resulted in federally-funded demolitions and changes to historic buildings and districts. Svendsen was involved in evaluating historic significance for more than 5,000 affected buildings and identifying preservation projects to compensate communities that saw adverse effects from federally-funded demolitions to hundreds of buildings. Creative mitigation projects included salvage efforts and house moving as well as many other preservation projects. Marlys relays those stories including major salvage efforts at the University of Iowa. The Sustainability Through Historic Salvage Conference was sponsored by Friends of Historic Preservation, The University of Iowa, the State Historical Society of Iowa, FEMA, and by Iowa Homeland Security and Emergency Management. Additional presentations from this symposium were recorded and will become available for viewing over the next few weeks.A complete list of available streaming videos can be found at citychannel4.com/video
