COLORADO’S MOST ENDANGERED PLACES LUNCHEON

Learn how Colorado’s rural communities of Elizabeth and Victor are attracting investment in their historic downtowns. Both have built upon their status as Colorado Main Street communities and leveraged Rural Economic Development Initiative funds, but they also employ unique and creative strategies that have helped to make them so successful. Learn how a feasibility study for a creative arts facility in a key historic property will help leaders in Elizabeth understand the demand for, and determine the potential size and nature of, a transformative asset of this type. Then find out how the VictorRe project is providing prospective investors in historic downtown Victor with essential information about the community and available buildings to encourage investments that will celebrate Victor’s past and advance its future. Attend this session to learn about Elizabeth and Victor’s success and valuable tools you can use to attract investment in your community’s historic resources. *APA CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDIT

Conservation Overlay Districts are an often underused tool that can help a community retain its unique character. Come learn how one Denver location, Krisana Park, used this preservation tool to maintain its contemporary styled homes. Built in 1954, Krisana Park was modeled after the California-based designs of post-war U.S. American real estate developer, Joseph Eichler. In 2015, a pattern book was produced to increase awareness of Krisana Park’s unique features and encourage sensitive adaptation. This neighborhood tour will help you learn how to identify key features of Contemporary style homes, how to sympathetically maintain and remodel mid-century homes, and how conservation overlay districts can be key preservation tools. Tour participants will be encouraged to study homes in the neighborhood, identify alterations, and evaluate their impact.
