Downtown Greeley removed from list of ‘Endangered Places’

GREELEY — After 12 years on the list, downtown Greeley has been removed from Colorado Preservation Inc.’s list of Endangered Places.

Colorado Preservation put downtown Greeley on the list in 2000, citing growth on the city’s west side that attracted businesses and residents.

This prompted an effort by local officials that lasted more than a decade to restore the downtown area. Part of downtown was designated as a Historic District, which made it easier for building owners to get grants and tax credits.

A year ago, the Greeley Downtown Development Authority launched a revitalization plan to establish financial incentives to give retailers and other downtown business owners a leg up.

The plan included ideas for attracting UNC students downtown, lease relief for tenants, and an economic development committee devoted to attracting new businesses downtown.

Greeley officials will hold a celebration at 7 p.m. Monday, at the Kress Cinema and Lounge, located at 817 8th Ave.
