President and chief executive officer of the National Trust for Historic Preservation since 2010, Meeks is deeply familiar with the challenges of meeting the needs of the present without breaking the rich links with the past. Maintaining such balance is especially essential in urban areas. As cities across the country become home to larger and more diverse populations, planners need to offer affordable housing and sustainability without erasing what makes neighborhoods distinctive. In this tour of resurgent areas from Buffalo to Cleveland to New Orleans, Meeks surveys the innovative ways communities are finding to keep their historic roots integral to thriving economies.
