If you have a historic building or structure, you probably will want to take care of it and use it somehow. Park County values its history and the Director of the Office of Historic Preservation can help you find ways to properly care for your historic property, suggest possible grants to help pay for the work, and explain how to comply with rehabilitation standards that might qualify the work on your property for State and or national tax credits.
Any changes to a listed or designated historic property will come before PCHPAC for review when you ask for your permit, so it’s a good idea to bring your plans to the Director of the Office of Historic Preservation to draw on PCHPAC’s input and ideas in advance. There is no charge for this service. PCHPAC will see if what you plan still is consistent with telling the story of the history of your property. If what you plan does not comply with the best interest of preserving the history of your place, the commission may offer some suggestions for appropriate methods. If you don’t care to comply with them, your property may simply lose its historic designation. Of course, your project would still need to comply with the regulations of the county’s Planning, Zoning, and Building Departments.
