The number of Colorado local governments enacting a local historic preservation program continues to increase. Certified Local Governments (CLGs) comprise an also increasing category of these local governments enacting a local preservation ordinance meeting certain standards. It is through these local ordinances that privately owned properties can truly be protected with design review. CLGs are eligible for an earmarked pool of federal grants, participate in the state preservation tax credit program, and are offered training workshops and meetings to encourage networking among local governments. OAHP staff is available to assist with the creation of new CLGs and to provide information to other commissions.
