About This Webinar

Not all design review boards have professional preservation staff but those that do have the potential of a valuable decision-making resource, one that is often overlooked. To make the most of that relationship, positive interactions and communication between commissioners, staff and even the public is key. Join Friederike Mittner from West Palm Beach, FL, and Robin Zeigler from Nashville, Tennessee, in a “podcast” type format as they share stories, recommendations, and pitfalls in maintaining relationships between commissioners, staff and the public. Collectively they have staffed commissions in 5 different cities for approximately 40 years.
