        MONTGOMERY — The city is marking 30 years of historic preservation with a community forum this week.

        Donovan D. Rypkema, a Washington, D.C.-based expert in historic preservation and economic revitalization of downtowns, will be the featured speaker at the Historic Preservation Forum at 10:30 a.m. at the Universalist Church.

        The church, downtown, is one of 33 historic landmarks have been identified since 1976, when City Council dedicated the historic district, said Mary Lou Rose, spokeswoman for the Montgomery Landmarks Commission and the Montgomery Historical Preservation Association.

        “The forum celebrates 30 years of historic preservation in the city, which began with the founding of the Montgomery Historical Society in 1970,” Mrs. Rose said. The historical society merged this year with the Montgomery Preservation Association, creating the Montgomery Historical Preservation Association. The association's mission is to save historic buildings. The Landmarks Commission is charged with determining and designating historically and architecturally significant buildings and areas in the city and educating the community about preservation, Mrs. Rose said.

        Mr. Rypkema is a principal in The Real Estate Services Group, which does consulting for government and nonprofit groups nationwide.

        A luncheon and dialogue with Mr. Rypkema will follow the forum at 12:45 p.m. at the Montgomery Inn.

        The forum is free. Reservations are required at $16.95 a person to attend the luncheon. Deadline for reservations is Monday. Call Mrs. Rose, 793-3573, or Kaye Gaffney, 791-9025.
