Contribute your insight to the city’s historic preservation program
A draft version of the city’s historic preservation program is nearly complete, but the city needs help from residents to fine-tune the details of the proposed program. Join us for a public open house on Thursday, Jan. 16 to discuss how this program may affect residents, local benefits of historic preservation, how to stay involved through the establishment of a Commerce City Local Landmark Register, and design review for local landmark properties.

Once a draft ordinance to create the program is complete, it should go before city council and the planning commission for feedback in February and could be considered for adoption in the spring.
Work on the draft historic preservation program began last summer with a public meeting and outreach to stakeholders in the community. The city’s historic preservation program will apply principles from the city’s Historic Preservation Plan, which was adopted in 2015. Historic preservation is more than bricks and mortar – it is cultural heritage, sustainability, economic development, heritage tourism, and more.
