This banner embraces the efforts that were put forth prior to the evolution of historic preservation. The Woodstock Preservation Alliance is the banner which the Preservationists stood under throughout their efforts for the historic preservation of the Woodstock Site. The "Dove Behind the Fence" was a signature logo used by the Woodstock Preservationists to raise awareness and the chain-link fence is symbolic of the fact that the privilege to walk freely on the Woodstock Site, is no longer allowed.

THE 1969 WOODSTOCK SITE
"A CAUSE FOR PRESERVATION"


With a Section 106 Review pending, we prepared to make our interests and concerns known, and provide documentation to support our views. Our efforts now focused on "The 1969 Woodstock Festival Site - A Cause for Preservation." Initially submitted to the Bethel Planning Board, this document was our attempt to take into account all of the best practices for historic preservation as they pertained to the Woodstock festival bowl and adjoining plateau. We strived to make a clear, concise argument for the mitigation of the plans for Phase 1 of the Bethel Center for the Arts, and provide rationale for the relocation of the Core Buildings Complex (CBC) and Farmer�s Market shelters to property within the nearby vicinity, yet off of the defined historic Woodstock festival property.

It was our desire that those entrusted with the protection of culturally and historically significant properties would see the need to mitigate the current Gerry Foundation plans, prior to any permanent damage occurring to the site. The document represents the preservationist position in the government arena and we requested that it be included within a Section 106 Review.
