Historic Preservation - Landmark Designation Application

  1. Landmark Designation Application
  2. Owners of properties landmarked by the City of Lafayette become eligible to apply for tax credits and/or Colorado Historic Preservation Fund grant money, may realize an increase in the value of your home and neighborhood, and can obtain official recognition that your building has special significance and is an important part of Lafayette's history.
