Historic preservation efforts do not take place without strong community support and broad public engagement. In Boulder, engagement and outreach occur mostly through the designation, design review, and demolition processes. Other ongoing outreach activities include events for Historic Preservation Month, a lecture series, recognition of Structures of Merit, and neighborhood meet & greets with historic district residents.
The Landmarks Board has recently re-established a public outreach subcommittee dedicated to exploring ways to better engage the community about historic preservation issues.
