In 2018 the city finalized an official statement committing to landmarking historic properties owned by the city, such as those in this proposed district. In 2022 the Boulder City Council discussed the potential of this historic district and asked the city planning staff to move forward with the steps to explore this historic designation. Most of the properties defined within the proposed boundaries of the district are already landmarked. Their historical, architectural, and social significance is well documented.
The one property not yet landmarked is Central Park. Boulder was significantly changed by the creation of this park, built according to the design ideas of the famous Olmsted Brothers landscape company. It created a natural and civic-oriented sense-of-place instead of the expansion of the area as the industrial center of town.
