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.

BLOCK D HOW TO LEVERAGE YOUR LOCALNESS: HALF-DAY WORKSHOP BY 2016 SAVING PLACES KEYNOTE, KIMBER LANNING FD1

Speakers: Michael Hussey (Planning Manger, Nolte VerticalFive [NV5]), Eric White (Survey Manager, Nolte VerticalFive [NV5])

LEVERAGE EXISTING GEOSPATIAL DATA TO MANAGE LINEAR RESOURCES

9:00 am-10:15 am • Location: 103/105

Back by popular demand, Kimber Lanning, Founder and Director of Local First Arizona, will lead a half-day workshop building on ideas from her 2016 keynote presentation. In this session, fans of Main Street will think about how small businesses can be leveraged to drive tourism using innovative collaborations and great story telling. Any great tourism strategy should include small businesses that are inspired to deliver great service and unique experiences. Attendees will be given examples of successful small town strategies to establish a brand that attracts visitors while simultaneously building hometown pride. *APA CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDIT Speakers: Kimber Lanning (Founder and Director, Local First Arizona)

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)

BOOM AND BUST DENVER

FD4

9:00 am-10:15 am • Location: 201 The architecture of Denver has been shaped by cycles of boom and bust. With another building boom currently underway, come learn about ways these cycles have impacted design in Denver. Examine how architects and planners from each period have dealt with the challenges of boom and bust cycles. Expect to learn the factors that drove these booms, how Denver has dealt with the growth, how the cycles of boom and bust have impacted design quality, and how the current boom compares with those of the past. *APA CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDIT

PRESERVATION FOR A CHANGING COLORADO: HERITAGE TOURISM

FD7

9:00 am-10:15 am • Location: 113

Preservation is one of the main drivers behind heritage tourism. Representatives from heritage areas and byways will discuss the direct and indirect benefits of these often large and regional endeavors that come with their own unique opportunities and challenges, including a recent study detailing the economic benefits of the state’s extensive byways program. Session Format • INTRO: Overview of this topic as addressed in the economic benefits of historic preservation study (intro by: Clarion) • Nancy Kramer, Program Coordinator, Northwest Colorado Cultural Heritage Program • Victoria “Tori” Martinez, Executive Director, Sangre de Cristo National Heritage Area • Lenore C.
