Preservationists across the country are working to get up to speed on Opportunity Zones, but trying to educate yourself can feel like taking a sip from the proverbial firehose. A Google search for “Opportunity Zones” turns up more than 800,000 results, but many of these are aimed at investors who stand to financially benefit from the tax incentive. There’s relatively little out there that considers Opportunity Zones from the perspective of local governments and advocates, still less focused on the incentive’s impacts on residents in the designated zones, and almost nothing about the preservation implications for historic resources.
