2022 Saving Places

Saving Places®

2022 marks the 25th anniversary of Colorado Preservation, Inc.’s (CPI) Saving Places® Conference, a fitting year to reflect and reimagine what is offered under the Saving Places Conference banner. Incorporating feedback and evaluations from previous conference events, CPI in 2022 embraces a new hybrid structure for the conference that combines in-person, online, and On-the-Road training presented in the proposed location of San Luis (details are unfolding!). At its core, the Saving Places conference provides critical training, networking, and educational opportunities to support the preservation community locally and nationwide.

The title of the 2022 conference will be “Perspectives in Preservation,” with the overarching theme of bringing voices that have been lost, sidelined, or overlooked within the preservation community and beyond. The 2022 Conference’s theme is Goal A, Preserving the Places that Matter, which allows CPI to explore how the community identifies, documents, evaluates, protects, and interprets Colorado’s irreplaceable historic and cultural resources, significantly for underrepresented, native, and BIPOC communities. This theme also covers the different interpretations of preservation from cultural to landscape to physical building preservation. CPI plans to explore different viewpoints on preservation to broaden the discussion as we look to the future of this important movement. What preservation means to different communities and how this definition could or should be expanded.


Save the Date! Saving Places® 2022

Following a legacy of in-person conferences and a successful, innovative Virtual Saving Places® 2021 conference, Colorado Preservation, Inc. will host a hybrid event for 2022, providing a comprehensive conference experience.

Preservation for a Changing Colorado

Historic preservation has a direct economic benefit to communities and Colorado! Take a look at the 2017 study, which considered the ways adaption of historic places has a direct financial effect on the state.

This updated, most resent study, was the result of a partnership between Colorado Preservation, Inc and History Colorado, funded by a grant from History Colorado's State Historical Fund. Prepared by Clarion Associates, the new report 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 determined that for every $1 million spent on historic preservation in Colorado it produced $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, responds to the state’s changing demographics, and addresses climate concerns.
