A property owner, any board or commission in Broomfield, or the City Council may nominate a property, area, building, or structure for historic landmark designation. Property owner permission is required as part of the application. Any nomination excluding the property owner’s permission will be rejected by the City.
The application is reviewed by staff, finalized and presented to the Historic Landmark Board at a public hearing for recommendation to City Council. City Council holds a public hearing and takes final action on a landmark designation application.
Local historic landmarks must be maintained adequately and historic features preserved. Modifications, alterations, and the removal or demolition of a landmarked resource requires approval by the Historic Landmark Board through a Certificate of Appropriateness.
