The CLG Program provides a community a process to identify, preserve and promote the historic places that tell their story and celebrate their identity as a unique and exciting place to live and visit. The program allows each community to decide what’s important to you and how to maintain and share what you find special.
Interested counties and municipalities should submit a certification packet to History Colorado. Drafts of any of the required items can be submitted to History Colorado for review. Submission of a draft ordinance before completing the entire packet is recommended. History Colorado has 30 days to review the application.

NPS has 45 days to review the certification packet.
