Volunteer of the Year
Historic Rehabilitation Tax Credits have played a critical role in preserving the character for which Salisbury and Rowan County are known. This character draws thousands each year to visit our area, stay in local bed and breakfasts and hotels, eat in local restaurants and spend money in local businesses – all of which generate sales tax income. These rehabilitations have eliminated blight, strengthened historic neighborhoods and greatly increased the local tax base. Improvements to these buildings have encouraged other renovations and improvements in their surrounding neighborhoods. Most importantly, these projects which have utilized preservation tax credits have created over 1,000 local jobs – from carpenters and masons to painters, plumbers and electricians.
