According to Community Planning and Development’spreservation staff, historic preservation is achieved by local designation of both structures and districts. In order for a potential structure or district to be eligible for designation, it must meet two of the three criteria for historical significance described in the Landmark ordinance (Chapter 30): History, Architecture, and Geography. (View theLandmark Ordinance for specific criteria). All applications for designation are reviewed by Landmark staff, the Landmark Preservation Commission, the Denver Planning Board, and City Council.
General process for designation is as follows:
While the Landmark Preservation Commission can make a recommendation for designation of an individual property or district, only City Council can approve the designation through a public hearing process. The entire process for designation is designed to maximize public input and involve the participation of registered neighborhood organizations.

Recycling Site at 16th and Josephine
We are thrilled that in June of 2013, Denver Public Works- Solid Waste agreed to take over funding service for the recycling center! For the past two and a half years, the drop-off recycling site, funded by a grant from the Keep America Beautiful Foundation as well as a personal contribution by CW Robb, has helped meet the recycling needs of apartment and condominium dwellers on Capitol Hill who have very few options for recycling. For the last several months, we have been awaiting word on our most recent grant application. Unfortunately, no grant funding was awarded at all to anyone! After many pleas by our office we are so pleased that Public Works-Solid Waste listened! We also appreciate the cooperative efforts (past, present, and future) that help us to contribute to the environmental welfare for District 10 neighborhoods. The facility reopened on June 1st of 2013, and resumed regular operating hours on Wednesdays from 3-6pm and Saturdays from 9am-12pm.
Special thanks go to Kellye Monaghan who has been our loyal volunteer on Wednesdays and Saturdays for two years! Be sure to express your appreciation to her when visiting the site.
Thanks to all constituents who recycle at this location as well!
