Description

The Philadelphia Inquirer examined the public policy that encourages granting special tax breaks in exchange for arcane deed restrictions known as "preservation easements." "Among other things, the restrictions ban changes to historic building or limit development of open space. While easements may do much to preserve history and valuable property, (the Inquirer learned) they also could have great financial significance... The series shed new light on unexplored and rarely debated policy issues associated with the preservation movement."
