Colorado’s Most Endangered Places Scholarship

mepl logo no list or dateColorado Preservation, Inc. is challenging all of our Endangered Places to attend the conference and we want to help you get there!

For the first time, Colorado Preservation, Inc is providing competitive scholarships to cover conference registration for representatives of our Endangered Places Sites.  The Saving Places Conference is the largest historic preservation conference in Colorado and the second largest conference in the nation.  The theme this year focuses on preservation trades and will provide our Endangered Places a great opportunity to network with preservation professionals, find project contractors, and learn more about preservation techniques.

This year the Saving Places Conference will also have a specific session for our listed Endangered Places.  The round table will provide the opportunity for sites to discuss their problems, identify solutions, and discover ways to facilitate a save.  A panel of Endangered Places speakers will highlight issues of fundraising, State Historical Fund Grants, creative ways to discourage trespassing & vandalism, ways to save places through historic survey, historic preservation districts, and outreach as well as ways to bring a vacant and deteriorating property into usable condition.

Applications will be accepted until midnight on Monday, December 22, 2014.  Awardees will be notified the beginning of January.

The Endangered Places session will take place Wednesday, February 4 at 1:30 pm. All Endangered Places representatives will be able to attend this session ONLY at no charge.

Preservation for a Changing Colorado

The 2017 update, Preservation for a Changing Colorado, resulted from a partnership between Colorado Preservation and History Colorado and Colorado Preservation, Inc. Prepared by Clarion Associates, the new report and accompanying website document the economic benefits of rehabilitation projects, analyzes property values and neighborhood stability in local historic districts, and summarizes the increasing impact of heritage tourism, private preservation development and the success of Colorado’s Main Street program. In a key finding, researchers found that for every $1 million spent on historic preservation in Colorado leads to $1.03 million in additional spending, 14 new jobs, and $636,700 in increased household incomes across the state! The 2017 report also considers the important role preservation plays in helping Coloradans provide new spaces for creative communities and co-working, create and sustain meaningful places, respond to the state’s changing demographics, and address climate concerns.
