Working with Cultural Resources Workshops

Working with Cultural Resources Workshops

All of Colorado’s communities contain historic and pre-historic archaeological resources. Durango has included preservation of archaeological resources since 1987 and has a record of creative mitigation in collaboration with both the Office of the State Archaeologist and our Tribal partners. The City of Durango’s Community Development Department will be hosting two workshops on June 1: one for local governments and one for the general public.

Cultural Resources Workshop for Local Governments
June 1, 2017, 10am-12pm
Durango Recreation Center

Learn how local governments can work with Tribal, State, and Federal partners to implement sensitive treatment of cultural resources that also promotes redevelopment. Join the City of Durango’s Community Development Department and the Colorado State Archaeologist to discuss best practices and specific case studies of creative mitigation of archaeological resources. Training will be held at the Durango Recreation Center on June 1, 2017, from 10am-12pm.

While the information about the case studies will be specific, it will also protect the identifying information about the location of sensitive archaeological resources. The presentations will be interactive and there will be time at the end of the training for discussion among participants.

Archaeological Preservation for Private Property Owners
June 1, 2017, 1pm-2pm
Durango Recreation Center

Join the City of Durango’s Community Development Department and the Colorado State Archaeologist to learn about funding and partnership opportunities for private property owners who may have archaeological resources on their property. State Archaeologist, Dr. Holly Norton, will clarify State and Federal requirements, which typically do not impact private property owners. She will also share partnership opportunities, methods of creative mitigation, and options for sensitive preservation of archaeology. Staff from the City of Durango will discuss the city’s requirements for some development projects and previous successes that balanced preservation of cultural resources with new development.

The goal of the public workshop is to demystify regulatory requirements and provide information about support for archaeological investigations or preservation on private property.
