2016 Saving Places Conference Session Proposals

At its core, the Saving Places® Conference is about education. The sessions are designed to inspire, energize and advance preservation while exposing preservationists – both seasoned and beginner – to new information they can immediately integrate into their work and communities.

The deadline to submit a session proposal was Tuesday, Sept. 8. After an overwhelming number of submissions, our staff and Conference Planning Committee are now reviewing proposals and will be in touch with session managers as soon as possible.

At the moment, we are no longer accepting session proposals. Please contact Megan Concannon at 303-839-4260 x230 with any questions.

Don’t forget to mark your calendar! The 2016 Saving Places® Conference is scheduled for February 3-6!

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.
