Historic Preservation - Program


Historic Preservation is a process of protecting local history through identification of unique places that tell “our” story. Salt Lake City’s Historic Preservation Program aims to preserve those areas of the City that are uniquely historic and tell the story of the City’s historic past through spaces and structures, while also providing tools to stabilize neighborhoods and areas within the City that are connected by community character more than a specific historic uniqueness.
