LINKS TO LOCAL, STATE AND NATIONAL
Historic Boulder partners with many organizations in our advocacy for preservation. Here are links to many sources of information that can help you with your own historic preservation activities.
City of Boulder Landmarks Ordinance
After the initial saves in the early 1970s, it became clear that Boulder needed a government mechanism to protect historic places, and to oversee and the administration of a local landmarking process. Historic Boulder drafted a historic preservation ordinance, which was unanimously voted into place by City Council in 1974. To this day, Historic Boulder collaborates closely with the Landmarks Board and City Preservation Staff to support their mission to preserve and protect the historic, architectural, and environmental assets that contribute to Boulder’s unique sense of place.
NATIONAL SECRETARY OF THE INTERIOR’S STANDARDS
“The Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties are common sense historic preservation principles in non-technical language. They promote historic preservation best practices that will help to protect our nation’s irreplaceable cultural resources.”
