Northglenn a Certified Local Government under National Historic Preservation Act

(Northglenn, CO) The City of Northglenn is now a Certified Local Government (CLG) in the Federal Preservation Program, a part of the National Historic Preservation Act, legislation intended to preserve historical and archaeological sites in the United States of America. Through several programs, assistance is provided that supports the preservation of America’s historic places and diverse history. In addition to celebrating Northglenn’s heritage, as a CLG the city is eligible to apply for grants provided by the program.

“We are proud of Northglenn’s heritage and we are proud to be an active partner in the Federal Preservation Program,” said Mayor Joyce Downing. As chair of the Northglenn Historic Preservation Commission (NHPC), Downing said she and the other board members are committed to enhancing their commitment to preserving the irreplaceable heritage of Northglenn. “The Stonehocker Farmhouse at 10950 Fox Run Parkway is the cornerstone of our historic preservation,” said Downing. “It celebrates the early residents and agricultural focus of our area. We also want to expand our reach. For example, we recently started researching and documenting Deza Estates, a mid-century housing development on the west side of I-25 in Northglenn. Those homes have historical and architectural significance.” Making Northglenn’s heritage available and known to residents is also a goal of the commission.

The NHPC was created in 1997 to protect, preserve and enhance the city's cultural, social, economic, political and architectural heritage. Board members include Mayor Joyce Downing, Maryann Gillespie, Jerry Gavette, Diane Cooksey, Elizabeth Candelario, Lauren Weatherly, Yvonne Lehman and Jack White.
