Historic Preservation Program Seeks Public Input for Historic Resource Survey Plan

The Historic Preservation Commission and City of Greeley staff seek public input and ideas for a Historic Resource Survey Plan focusing on pre-1970 development in east Greeley.

History Colorado, the State Historical Society, awarded a State Historical Fund grant to the City of Greeley to hire a consultant to develop a historic resource survey plan to guide future survey efforts. Historic resource surveys document historic buildings, sites, structures, objects and districts. This survey plan will focus on the area east of 35th Avenue, the primary area of pre-1970 development in Greeley. 

City officials hired Logan Simpson, a planning and cultural resource consulting firm, to complete the plan. The firm will provide an overview of the project and request input from the Historic Preservation Commission at the Commission meeting at 4 p.m., Monday, Nov. 16 on Zoom.

The webinar will be live streamed on the City of Greeley’s YouTube channel, but to participate in the webinar community members must, register at this link: greeleygov.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_yt7tbBckQs6M_ZTE9GjiKg. Anyone who registers will receive a confirmation email with the Zoom webinar information needed to join.  Participants can submit questions and comments through Zoom’s chat feature or email them in advance to betsy.kellums@greeleygov.com.

City officials want input from citizens about what historic resources, places, areas, and themes are important, primarily for the area of the survey plan, east of 35th Avenue. Based on consultant research and public input, the survey plan will evaluate previous surveys, provide reconnaissance information on the area, identify areas and themes for study and provide recommendations for future surveys.

Community members can use the online comment form to provide ideas for the survey. Anyone can find the form on the city’s Historic Preservation webpage: http://greeleygov.com/services/historic-preservation and complete it online. For any questions about the form, please email betsy.kellums@greeleygov.com.

The city’s survey firm will host a final project meeting at the end of the project, likely in mid-late summer, 2021.
