Endangered Places Program Nomination Form

Nominations Open for 2023 Endangered Places Program Listing!

EPP 25thKnow of a threatened or endangered historic site, place or resource in your community? If so, please consider nominating it to Colorado’s Most Endangered Places for listing in 2023. 

CPI has worked with Coloradans for 25 years now to identify, preserve and save endangered historic sites in 77% of Colorado’s counties and in 75 unique communities since the program began in 1998. Nominations are officially open and can be filled out for CPI’s consideration website or accessed by contacting Kim Grant at kgrant@coloradopreservation.org

Once received, nominations will be assigned to reviewers who will contact site representatives and visit the community to learn more about the threats to the resource in question. Threats to historic resources can range from development pressures, abandonment, neglect, natural disasters, lack of appreciation or resources for preservation, and other factors. In reviewing nominations, CPI considers the urgency of the threat, level of community support, resource significance and location as well as resource needs and the unique definition of what a “save” would be for the resource if listed.

Currently, Colorado’s Most Endangered Places includes 130 diverse historic resources of all types from across the state; 54 of which have been saved, 47 of which are in process, with 22 on alert status and only seven that have been lost.  EPP listing is often the catalyst for resources to advance from threatened to successful preservation projects, so reach out now to begin the process! 

The deadline for receipt of nominations is Monday, August 22, 2022, at 4pm.

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.
