OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma City is planning an historic preservation workshop for Oklahomans seeking practical advice on how to build, renovate or add on to a business or home in a historic area.

The free workshop is planned Friday in the Civic Center Music Hall's Joel Levine Rehearsal Hall in Oklahoma City.

The morning session features practical advice on how to build or renovate buildings in a historic commercial area. Participants will take part in a mini charette and go on a walking tour of Automobile Alley.

The afternoon session caters to homeowners who want to add on to their homes or are considering building a new home in a historic neighborhood.

The City of Norman will hold a similar workshop in the Norman City Council Chamber on September 12.
