The Historic Preservation program helps preserve the community's unique heritage, culture, and character by protecting physical assets from Boulder's past. Community interest in preservation has resulted in more than 1,300 designated historic properties in Boulder, including 175 individual landmarks and 10 historic districts.
- Design Review for landmarked buildings or those located within a historic district
- Demolition Review for non-designated buildings over 50 years old
- Landmark Designation
- Community Engagement efforts, including the Structures of Merit program.
In 2013, the city developed a Historic Preservation Plan. The plan outlines the different program areas in detail and identifies near-term and long-term goals for the program.
