Historic Preservation Board Bylaws

View the most recent Historic Preservation Board Bylaws (last revised September 1, 2020), for which future revisions may occur by action of the City Council.

Overview

The Historic Preservation Board was established by Ordinance No. 1089 as approved by City Council on November 17, 2009. There have since been two revised ordinances amending Chapter 2, Article 9, Section 2-9-10 of the Municipal Code of the City of Fort Morgan, Colorado. On September 4, 2018, Ordinance No.1219 was approved, followed by approval of Ordinance No. 1246 on September 15, 2020, which was to make necessary changes for the City of Fort Morgan to become a Certified Local Government (CLG) with History Colorado. The City of Fort Morgan earned formal designation as a CLG  on January 7, 2021.
 
The Board consists of at least five (5) members, but not more than nine (9) members who serve three-year staggered terms. Members must reside (or own real property) within the City limits. Regular meetings may be held as needed, but at least quarterly, on the second Thursday of each month. 

The principal responsibility of the Board is for matters of historical preservation of historic sites and districts within the municipal boundaries of the City. The Board advises and makes recommendations to City Council on those matters pertinent to the Board's duties. A Councilmember serves as a non-voting liaison to the Board.
