Structures of Merit

Structures of Merit

In 1987, the Landmarks Board established the Structure of Merit program to recognize properties possessing historic, architectural, or aesthetic merit. This recognition is an alternative to landmark designation, and does not carry the protection or regulation of local designation. Buildings and sites listed on either the National Register of Historic Places or the Colorado State Register of Historic Properties are automatically added to the Structure of Merit program. This program is strictly honorary and not subject to design review. Currently, 75 properties are recognized as Structures of Merit.
