Armory Park Plan Published

Susan Beirer and Steve Grede made a presentation to APNA last May regarding a plan to document and preserve the public landscape (streetscape) of Armory Park. At that time it was agreed that the final document would be added to APNA website when finished. That has now happened and now Armory Park Conservation Master Plan 2017 is available to be downloaded as a PDF. It has been published by the Heritage Conservation Program of the College of Architecture, Planning and Landscape Architecture.

The plan came out of Helen Erickson’s Preservation Planning spring 2017 class.  Whatever your level of interest in Armory Park’s public spaces you will find something for you in this document. If your interest in the history and landscape is not too deep, scan through the pictures and read some of the related text. You will learn some new things about Armory Park. If you are deeply interested, you won’t want to miss a single word.

Old Articles

I was just searching through the articles in the Old Articles category and realized that the way they are presented could be confusing. All of the articles appear to be written by the same person (me). That is not the case and all of the articles in this category were written by previous authors before I came to the site. When the site was moved to a new hosting platform, I also moved the years of previous articles so that our records and history would not be lost. Unfortunately, the transfer also identified me as the author of all articles, losing attribution to the actual authors. I could see no practical way to preserve the authorship information for so many articles.

If you would like to reclaim authorship of articles, please give me your name, contact information and the article titles. I will make the corrections.
