Warner Robins Historic Preservation Training- MG RC

Two of the implementation activities listed in the 2011-2015 Middle Georgia RC Regional Work Program are to “Provide outreach, training, and technical assistance on Historic Preservation-related topics through presentations at institutions, agencies, government meetings, workshops, symposiums, etc.” and to “Provide technical assistance to local historic preservation organizations.” With this in mind, Regional Commission staff assisted the newly formed Warner Robins Historic Preservation Commission members with various questions and helped lay the framework for the commission.

As a young community with history dating back only to World War II, the City of Warner Robins has realized that the preservation of heritage is essential to the promotion of the health, prosperity and general welfare of the people. With that in mind, in 2013, the City of Warner Robins created a Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) to support and further the preservation of historical, cultural, and aesthetic heritage. The newly established commission consists of five members who were appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by the City Council. The members, each with differing levels of experience, education, and preservation knowledge, required training on best-practices and responsibilities of the HPC.

Over the course of six months, the MGRC provided training to the Warner Robins HPC on the following topics: the Importance of Historic Preservation; Robert’s Rules of Order; Differences between National Register Historic Districts and Local Historic Districts; Public Relations; Georgia Alliances for Historic Preservation Commissions (GAPC); and, Historic Preservation Commission and Certified Local Governments (CLG) Program Information. Because of the training provided by MGRC staff, this commission has been able to lay a solid foundation for future efforts in historic preservation. In providing this training, the MG RC moved forward in implementing specific activities in its regional work program, as well as addressing items in the work program of the Warner Robins comprehensive plan.
