Preservation Services

Colorado Preservation, Inc. (CPI) offers a variety of preservation-related fee based services for individuals, organizations and communities including grant writing, grants management, and National & State Register nominations.   As Colorado’s only statewide grassroots preservation organization, we are also available and eager to help fellow preservationists and interested parties, at no fee, to navigate the world of preservation through coaching, brainstorming, and general guidance.  Please not that Colorado Preservation has limited capacity with only four full-time professionals, so we must be selective with our time and project.  Endangered Places Properties receive priority assistance and consideration.

For more information please review our NEW Preservation Services Program Fact Sheet or contact Preservation Services Director Jane Daniels at 303.893.4260 x236.

Contracting with CPI:

Please review the various contracts below as they pertain to your project.  They outline the legal responsibilities of both CPI and the Owner in regard to the project. CPI is limited in capacity and must carefully choose projects to manage throughout the state based on considerations such as owner‘s proven capacity, local support, historical merit of the resource and availability of match. Properties featured in our Endangered Places Program receive priority.  This decision is guided by our Preservation Services Committee of the Board of Directors.

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.
