Mission & Goals of the Historic Preservation Alliance of Colorado Springs

The mission of the Historic Preservation Alliance of Colorado Springs is to provide leadership and inspiration to preserve, protect and promote Colorado Springs’ heritage and historic neighborhoods for today and future generations.

We accomplish this important mission through Advocacy, Education, Events and Strategic Alliances.

Our work combines the vision and goals of our board leaders, engaged volunteers and citizens from across our region. We are proud to:

  • Promote and encourage the preservation of buildings, sites, neighborhoods, commercial centers, streetscapes, cultural landscapes, monuments, trees and the historic environment throughout the City of Colorado Springs and greater Pikes Peak region.
  • Promote and encourage effective historic preservation policies in the City through coordinated advocacy efforts with our key strategic alliances.
  • Educate and encourage citizens community-wide in the appreciation and study of the pre-historic, historic, architectural, environmental and aesthetic significance of buildings, structures, sites, vistas, and neighborhoods including practical and effective preservation methodology.
  • Disseminate information and inspire public interest in historic preservation and downtown revitalization through the preparation of educational programs and the promotion of training in preservation skills and techniques.
  • Help coordinate historic preservation activities throughout the Pikes Peak region.
  • Celebrate our irreplaceable heritage and honor those who work hard to keep our history alive.
