ABOUT THE LECTURE:
Continuity and Connection: Reframing Historic Preservation for Santa Fe’s Future
Old buildings orient us in time and space. They serve as touchstones for our own identity, connecting us with both personal and community memory. In a world that is so rapidly changing, old buildings provide an experience of continuity and tradition. Santa Fe was one of the first cities in the United States to regulate the preservation of old buildings through historic design review. For more than 100 years, the City of Santa Fe has used policy and regulatory tools to consciously curate architectural districts that honor local heritage and promote the continuation of a specific historical narrative and architectural tradition. But consider for a moment that any practice of preserving the past is inherently selective and purposefully serves to either reinforce or alter our understanding of that past. Acts of public history such as these happen today, in the present, and are reflections of what we value and how we see ourselves. Assuming this, what do Santa Fe’s historic preservation regulations reflect about our community today? And how do they relate to our visions for Santa Fe’s future? As we formulate a preservation ethos that will take us into the next 100 years, we are presented with a challenge to confront and broaden the ways we think about and practice historic preservation in Santa Fe and to understand its impacts both within our historic districts and in the community at large.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER:
Lisa Gavioli Roach is the City of Santa Fe’s newly hired Historic Preservation Division Manager. A community planner and historic preservationist by training, Roach understands that the importance of saving historic buildings lies not just in preserving the physical fabric of place but in creating the opportunity for living people to tell their stories, to connect with their pasts, and to derive meanings that can shape their community’s future. She received her Masters Degree in Community and Regional Planning and Graduate Certificate in Historic Preservation and Regionalism from the University of New Mexico in 2009. She came to the world of planning and historic preservation through her studies in ancestral Puebloan archaeology at the University of Arizona, where she received a Master of Arts in Anthropology in 2004. She is a former board member of the Route 66 De Anza Association, the New Mexico Heritage Preservation Alliance, and Cornerstones Community Partners.

Roach has worked at all levels of government and in the nonprofit and private sectors, around affordable housing, trails and open space conservation, cultural resource management, economic development and community revitalization, and residential real estate sales. Having witnessed the detrimental effects of urban sprawl and exclusionary zoning on a community’s cultural resources, identity, and livability, Roach is committed to reframing historic preservation as a tool to promote sustainable development and creative placemaking, to facilitate community storytelling and reconciliation, and to enhance social equity.
