“There may have been a time when preservation was about saving an old building here or there, but those days are gone. Preservation is in the business of saving communities and the values they embody.”
~ Richard Moe, President of the National Trust for Historic Preservation 1993 – 2009
Whether it’s a single project or an entire community, preservation is no small task. By its nature, preservation requires an ongoing commitment that is larger than any individual. This is why working together toward common goals is so important. The preservation people are here for you!
PRESERVATION GRANT PROGRAM
We are currently developing a small grant program that will support owners and stewards of eligible historic properties in rehabilitation, preservation, and restoration efforts. Look out for more details soon!
LANDMARK APPLICATION SUBMISSION
Boulder’s 1974 Landmark Preservation Ordinance granted local preservation organizations like Historic Boulder the ability to submit landmark applications to the City. We have submitted several applications over the years, and we are proud stewards of this responsibility.
HISTORIC HOMEOWNERS’ COALITION
Another exciting new program in the works, The Historic Homeowners’ Coalition will provide a gathering place and community platform for the owners of homes in Boulder’s various historic districts. We look forward to announcing more details soon!
COLLABORATION WITH LANDMARKS BOARD AND PRESERVATION STAFF
Historic Boulder enjoys its friendly relationship with City Preservation Staff and the Landmarks Board. We often attend Landmarks Board and City Council meetings to keep abreast of preservation decisions, and we have collaborated on numerous research and survey projects over the years.
