Lake City, Colorado Historic District
The Design Guidelines serve as a tool for preserving the Lake City Historic District, located within the Town of Lake City.
These guidelines inform property owners and builders about compatible and appropriate design for new construction within the District. They provide design expectations for additions and alterations made to the District's historic buildings. They also advise property owners on preserving their historic commercial buildings and houses.
The Design Guidelines are used by the Lake City Building Inspector, the Preservation Review Officer, and Board of Trustees as they review design plans for construction projects within the Historic District.
This document also describes the town's history and illustrates its architectural styles to help people understand, appreciate, and preserve Lake City's architectural heritage. The Design Guidelines are enforced by the Town's 1984 Historic Preservation Ordinance. The guidelines also reflect The Secretary of Interior's Standards for Rehabilitation and Standards for Preservation.
