Strategic Plan
The 5-year strategic plan is meant to be a guiding document for the Historic Preservation Commission to further celebrate and promote the preservation of the city's history both tangible and intangible.

Stonehocker Property

The Thede Farmhouse, located at 10950 Fox Run Parkway,  was added to the National Register of Historic Places and the State Register of Historic Properties in 1998. The farmhouse is commonly referred to as the Stonehocker House. It sits at the center of Stonehocker Park on the eastern edge of the city boundary.

The commission is currently working to restore the Thede House as a museum and cultural center, showing the history of homesteading in Colorado.

Deza Estates Historical & Architectural Survey 
The Deza Estates Historical and Architectural Survey provides the developmental and architectural history of the mid-century modern neighborhood. As the oldest neighborhood in the city, the HPC pursued a survey to understand the history, significance, and integrity of the neighborhood. The report provided recommendations for further research and opportunities for national and local designation.
