Donovan Rypkema

Nantucket Preservation Trust along with ReMain invited Donovan Rypkema of Place Economics to speak at the Coffin School in September 2009. Mr. Rypkema has lectured widely on economic and preservation issues for downtowns, believing that historic preservation is consistent with environmental responsibility in that the greenest projects are those that recognize the energy imbedded in the existing built environment. Sustainable redevelopment of downtowns is about local jobs as well as historic preservation and energy efficiency.
