PACE can pay for new heating & cooling systems, lighting improvements, elevator upgrades, roofing upgrades, energy-generating solar panels, water pumps, insulation, and much more.  Property types eligible include commercial, industrial, non-profit, agricultural and multi-family. PACE pays for 100% of a project's costs (including "soft costs") and is repaid for up to 25 years with a VOLUNTARY special assessment added to the property's tax bill.

Substitute Materials for Historic Buildings
Ken Hughes - Decorative Restorations
9:45 am -10:45 am

Keeping original architectural features is essential to maintaining the character of urban historic districts and the desirability of these distinctive neighborhoods as great places to live. In some cases, features are too deteriorated to repair, or a flawed design has led to ongoing maintenance issues and deterioration. The session will discuss how innovative modern substitute materials can be used to rebuild or replace damaged or missing features of historic homes, helping to ensure their long-term preservation, and showcase examples of successful repairs and reconstructions.

Building Smart Cities and the Internet of Everything

This session will explore the smart cities conversations happening in Greater Cincinnati and beyond, with a focus on the four pillars of smart planning:  Connectivity, Mobility, Security, and Sustainability.

Local Historic Districts and Honoring the Fabric: Lessons in Context Sensitive Development
Elizabeth Johnson - City of Cincinnati
12:20 pm - 1:20 pm

Infill development can be a controversial topic and communities need to define well what context sensitive development means in order to manage change and continued development. This session will look at different types of infill and new construction development as well as different interpretations of what "compatible but differentiated" means.

Wood Restoration
