The Pikes Peak Preservation Forum V -
A Success!

We would like to thank our volunteers and attendees for joining us. And most importantly, thank you to our speakers, We learned so much from each of you!

Forum V

Forum Presentations

Representing History Colorado was Eric Newcombe whose energy focused us all on the big picture of how preservation can fund great outcomes, all with a lot of patience and persistence. Colorado Preservation, Inc. was represented by the energy dynamo of Jennifer Orrigo Charles, executive director who announced that Colorado Springs will be the host for their annual Saving Places event in February 2025! The final presentations were from Ron Sladek who summarized his assignment to produce a comprehensive reconnoissance of the city’s historic neighborhoods, which according to Mr. Newcombe can be thirty years old now!  

The Primary


The primary objective of this year’s Forum was to help Ron Sladek and Bill Gray get the word out about the Survey. They said it was a great success and helped further the goal of reaching more citizens. We had sixty plus folks including three City Councilors who were genuinely interested in everything we presented. 

We Provide

Involvement through Advocacy

Sally Clark represented the Mayor’s office and spoke of her own passion for Historic Preservation and was the ideal spokes person for the City. Following Sally was Dianne Bridges from the Historic Neighborhoods Partnership who brought their message of successful neighborhood involvement through advocacy.
