Saving Places® 2017

Welcome to the 20th – that’s right, the 20th! – Annual Saving Places Conference! We are thrilled that you have joined us! We realize that attending the conference is a commitment, both in time and money, and year after year, preservationists have decided to spend the first few days of February with us. We very much appreciate your involvement, and have designed this year’s conference line-up with powerful, useful content that can help you make a difference in your community.

When reading your 2016 conference session evaluations and comments, the CPI staff and conference committee heard loud and clear that more community based conversations would be helpful to you. To that end, we have asked Keynote speakers, Joe Nickol and Kevin Wright of Ohio based Walnut Hills Redevelopment Foundation, to talk about their new workbook, “The Neighborhood Playbook,” which promotes collaboration between developers and preservationists and how communities can create demand for historic preservation development. Not only are they ingenious, but very entertaining and inspiring! We also heard your accolades and excitement regarding last year’s Keynote speaker, Kimber Lanning, of Local Arizona First. Those of you here last year may remember her compelling message about local business and its power to strengthen community. We are delighted that Kimber has agreed to return to our conference this year and give a half-day workshop that will send you home with solid, proven tactics to strengthen business while preserving your historic neighborhood. And for those of you who work with people who only respond to solid numbers (and we all do), you’ll be able to share the results of Preservation for a Changing Colorado, the updated report on the economic benefits of historic preservation in Colorado. CPI, Clarion Associates, and History Colorado have spent the last year collecting data, and will unveil the results at Friday’s Western Heritage Luncheon and throughout the conference in sessions focused on the study and its findings. Of course, we also have a terrific line-up of conference sessions, including everything from how to talk to your state legislator to a wonderful list of tours, including Denver’s mid-century Krisana Park neighborhood and a tour of the benchmark project that helped define preservation in Denver, Larimer Square. With your attendance and participation, I know this, our 20th Anniversary Saving Places Conference, will be the best ever!

Julie Johnson CPI Board Chair Elect and Conference Committee Chair

Colorado Preservation Inc.’s Most Endangered Places Program (EPP) celebrates 20 years in 2017! That’s 20 years of collaboration and advocacy, 20 years demonstrating that Saving Places is important and provides economic benefits to communities across Colorado. In 1998, CPI revealed its first list of selected sites, which was the cumulation of years of planning and extensive selection process. From the beginning, the program’s goal was to recognize and protect a diverse group of endangered places by demonstrating their importance to the state. The Endangered Places Program, through its approach of awareness, advocacy, and assistance has helped engage communities and inspire individuals to plan a future with their threatened historic properties. Over the years the program has helped guide efforts to design preservation plans around a resource’s specific challenges, and bring together the right stakeholders to critical projects.

One night stay at Windsock Acres in cabin of your choosing.

“EPP is about more than just recognizing and preserving historic buildings, structures and places. These historic resources are as diverse as Colorado; and they tell the stories of centuries of people who lived and live the trials, tribulations, successes and joys that created Colorado as it is now and will be in the future.  This program changes people’s lives by demonstrating that the history and heritage of all of us is worthy of recognition.” - Rebecca Goodwin Through EPP, CPI has been able to elevate the awareness brought to individual struggles occurring across the state; shedding new light and attention to places too important to lose. As a result of the program, larger preservation issues have been addressed statewide and special sites in need of further research, protection and emphasis have been identified. In the 20 years since CPI published its first list of Colorado’s Most Endangered Places, the program has evolved but the core mission remained strong. CPI is thankful to its many partners and supporters who have helped to shape the program to what it is today. In particular CPI would like to thank and recognize the History Colorado State Historical Fund for partially funding the program and for the strong role it has played in its success over the years.

WEDNESDAY CONTINUED

WM5

11:15 am-11:45 am • Location: 107

HOT TOPIC SESSION (30 minutes): The majority of historic masonry high-rise buildings were constructed between 1890 and 1930. After 1945 many of these buildings started to experience significant distress, which led to many being torn down or modified to reduce the risk of falling masonry. Until the 1980s most building facades were repaired by masonry contractors; cities then began to implement code mandating building facade inspection programs. This resulted in the shift toward architects and engineers in masonry façade repairs. Repair philosophies and approaches have evolved over the past 100 years and continue to evolve. This presentation will highlight case studies and provide an overview of the evolution.

Speakers: Mark Rodman (Director of Preservation Programs, History Colorado), Amy Cole (Heritage Partnerships Program Manager, National Park Service), Ann Pritzlaff (Past Member, Advisory Council on Historic Preservation), Jennifer Buddenborg (Senior Field Officer, National Trust for Historic Preservation), Steve Turner (Executive Director/SHPO, History Colorado), Tim Stroh (Architect, Colorado Main Street), Jennifer Orrigo Charles (Executive Director, Colorado Preservation, Inc.), Lane Ittelson (Executive Director, Colorado Historical Foundation), Karen Kinnear (President, Colorado Archaeological Society)

STUDYING AND PRESERVING COLORADO’S MINING FRONTIER

THC6

3:15 pm-4:30 pm • Location: 103/105

Colorado’s development is closely tied to the search for valuable ore – one of the earliest drivers of Euro-American exploration and eventual settlement of the West. Today many communities have remnants of this process that are abandoned, vacant and crumbling, due to lack of maintenance. Learn about why these sites are important and the latest studies being performed on how we can preserve them. This session will also describe the need to combine the latest archaeological and archival research to understand the story of mining in Colorado, and to interpret and preserve individual sites statewide. *APA CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDIT Speakers: Eric Twitty (Mountain States Historical)

FRIDAY TOUR

FD5

9:00 am-10:15 am • Location: 109

PRESERVATION AND ADAPTIVE REUSE IN RESPONSIBLE URBAN DEVELOPMENT: A TALK AND TOUR ON HISTORIC LARIMER SQUARE FT1

There are many small community museums and libraries in Colorado that are recognized as state repositories for archaeological collections and/or documentary archives. Unfortunately, there are many challenges to collections care that these institutions face. This is especially true today when many libraries, museums and other local repositories increasingly lack the resources to effectively manage their collections. This session is a joint presentation given by Colorado State Archives and History Colorado that will provide information on current plans and initiatives to help these facilities.

9:00 am-11:30 am • Location: Meet at Convention Center

Larimer Square is a historic block of 21 buildings, many of which are more than 100 years old. Known as Denver’s original “Main Street,” this iconic block is a fully functional and operational business, retail, and restaurant destination that welcomes millions of visitors each year. Join Patricia Mueller, Architect and Project Manager for Larimer Associates, for a special “behind the scenes” look at the historic buildings on Larimer Square. The tour will highlight and explain the original architecture, discuss the historic preservation efforts to maintain (and in many cases improve) the buildings, and share stories and secrets about the buildings’ pasts.

Speakers: Aly Jabrocki (State Archivist and CHRAB Chair, Colorado State Archives), Todd McMahon (Staff Archaeologist/State Curation Coordinator, History Colorado), Holly Norton (State Archaeologist and Deputy State Historic Preservation Officer, Office of Archaeology and Historic Preservation)

USING HIGH DENSITY SURVEY (HDS) FOR HISTORIC PRESERVATION

FD6

9:00 am-9:30 am • Location: 111

Speakers: Patricia Mueller (Architect and Director of Project Management, Larimer Associates)

HOT TOPIC SESSION (30 minutes): A high density survey (HDS) scanner is a piece of surveying equipment that measures points based on angle and distance from the center point of the scanner to create 3D renderings of place. The collection of 50,000-1,000,000-persecond points creates a point cloud that represents the subject at a true scale in three dimensions. This session will illustrate how HDS has been used for the preservation and restoration of historic buildings and streetscapes.

COMPLEMENTARY TAX CREDITS: BROWNFIELDS AND CONSERVATION EASEMENTS

FD3

FD6

9:45 am-10:15 am • Location: 111

HOT TOPIC SESSION (30 minutes): Linear cultural resources like trails and roads are often overlooked during cultural resource planning, but they are commonly threatened by neglect, abandonment, overuse and modifications. Traditionally, these resources have been difficult to evaluate and manage because of their size and the cost of surveying. Happily, the twenty-first century has brought increased availability of this data. The City of Boulder’s Open Space and Mountain Parks Department has developed a method to use existing data to map, research, evaluate and monitor its historic roads, trails and other linear resources. This session will present examples from Boulder’s use of this method, and will outline the benefits of managing linear resources using the various tools available. Speakers: Katy Waechter (Archaeologist, City of Boulder’s Open Space and Mountain Parks Department)

9:00 am-10:15 am • Location: 107

Funding is a critical component to successful preservation projects. In addition to the new Historic Preservation Tax Credits, Colorado also has two older programs that can help put more money in the pockets of certain landowners in Colorado. Does your historic building sit on a piece of land that provides public benefit through its scenery, habitat or productive agriculture? If so, a conservation easement may be the right tool for you! If your redevelopment project includes cleaning up environmental contamination, Brownfield Tax Credits might be an option. Learn how these two programs can either stand alone or complement preservation project funding statewide. Speakers: Fonda Apostolopoulos (Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment), Ariel Steele (Owner, Tax Credit Connection), Mark Weston (Conservation Easement Program Manager, DORA’s Division of Real Estate)

On August 25, 2016, the National Park Service celebrated its 100th birthday. In 2015 alone, our nation’s parks generated over 307 million visits with visitors spending an estimated $16.9 billion in nearby communities – spending that supported 295,300 jobs and provided a $32 billion boost to the national economy. However, inconsistent public funding has resulted in a deferred maintenance backlog in our nation’s parks estimated to be about $12 billion dollars (FY 2015), of which over $3 billion is attributed to historic, non-transportation-related structures and sites. The National Trust for Historic Preservation has joined with the Pew Charitable Trusts and the National Park Conservation Association on a national campaign to acquire a reliable, dedicated federal funding source to address the deferred maintenance backlog. Join this session to hear how this issue is playing out in Colorado and what advocacy tools are available for you to make a difference.

Challenging to love, Permastone veneers and Brutalist-style architecture are often ignored or even reviled by preservationists. Made of several layers of stucco that were molded and pigmented to mimic natural stone, Permastone was a popular method for updating brick houses and commercial storefronts in the mid-20th century. Featuring monumental concrete forms and rough textured surfaces, Brutaliststyle architecture was popular in the 1960s and 1970s, especially for large-scale Urban Renewal projects. This session will examine Permastone and Brutalism as part of a continuum of innovative uses of cementitious materials in the 20th century and make a case for their reevaluation today. *AIA CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDIT Speakers: Jennifer Cappeto (Senior Planner for Landmark Preservation, City and County of Denver), Abbey Christman (Associate City Planner in Landmark Preservation, City and County of Denver)

THE FISCAL REALITIES OF HISTORICAL BUILDING REUSE

FG2

3:15 pm-4:30 pm • Location: 103/105

The decision to rehabilitate a historic building is often plagued by two questions: what will this building be used for and what will it cost? Stakeholders need to consider current market characteristics, perceived community need, potential growth trajectory, operational costs, and cost-recovery percentages to answer these questions. In this session BBC Research & Consulting will share six Colorado case studies of buildings in varying stages of repair and use to provide insights on the realities of historical building reuse. Session participants will learn about identifying a specific niche market for the building, utilizing a “phased approach” to rehabilitation, and how historical buildings can compete with other entertainment areas. In addition, BBC will cover the importance of a feasibility study and what stakeholders can expect in an overall market assessment. *APA CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDIT Speakers: Ada Van Roekel (Research Associate, BBC Research and Consulting) Kevin Williams (Managing Director, BBC Research & Consulting)

BOSLER HOUSE - TECHNICAL DETAILS

FG5

3:15 pm-4:30 pm • Location: 109 Constructed in 1875, the Bosler House is one of the oldest residences in Denver and a designated Denver Landmark. The building is an excellent example of historic Italianate style residential architecture. In 2007 the roof of the building was removed in preparation for a renovation project. The proposed alterations would have altered the historic form of the building’s roof, and the project was stopped. The building sat vacant without a roof for nearly 10 years and its future remained uncertain. In 2015, a Historic Structure Assessment (HSA) was completed by Hord Coplan Macht and JVA, Inc. Following completion of the HSA, a roof replacement project was completed in conjunction with exterior rehabilitation work. This session will focus on the technical details and documentation of the Bosler House throughout its exterior rehabilitation. The design team will provide an overview of the condition of the house prior to the start of the rehabilitation, an analysis of the challenges faced during design, a description of the reconstruction of missing character defining features, and an explanation of the use of a 3D Revit model in the documentation process. *AIA HSW CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDIT Speakers: Christine Britton (Design Engineer, JVA, Inc.)

This long-running project began in 2001, when the Colorado Historical Foundation (CHF), working under a grant provided by the State Historical Fund (SHF), initiated an effort to study the economic benefits of historic preservation. Research topics with particular resonance for preservationists around Colorado were identified. The central topics addressed in the first report were rehabilitation projects, property values and neighborhood stability in local historic districts, and heritage tourism. Subsequent updates to the original report were released in 2005 and 2011. Each new version has introduced new issues, such as gentrification, changing economic diversity and sustainability. These new topics have helped tell the ever-expanding story of the ways preservation benefits our state in expected and unexpected ways. While many outstanding reports have been produced in other states, the Colorado project is one of the most in-depth and long-running studies of the benefits of preservation in the country.
