Colorado State Cultural Considerations Overview (11-CO-a)

Information current as of 2020
In Colorado, a person (developer) may have to comply with the state historic preservation process and consult with the Colorado Office of Archaeology and Historic Preservation if a project may affect a nominated or listed state register property. In addition, a developer is required to report any human remains discovered during project construction to the State Historical Society of Colorado (Society).


Most proposed projects will trigger the State’s historic preservation process, which is directed by the Colorado Office of Archaeology and Historic Preservation. Colo. Rev. Stat. § 24-80.1-102; Colo. Rev. Stat. § 24-80.1-104(2)(a); History Colorado - Review and Compliance Webpage.

11-CO-a.1 to 11-CO-a.2 – Does the Project Involve a State Action That May Affect a Historic Property?

In Colorado, the State historic preservation process is triggered by projects involving a state action that may affect a nominated or listed State Register property. Colo. Rev. Stat. § 24-80.1-102; Colo. Rev. Stat. § 24-80.1-104(2)(a); History Colorado - Review and Compliance Webpage. The Office of Archaeology and Historic Preservation (OAHP) consults with state agencies pursuant to the State Register Act to determine how a proposed project might affect eligible or listed historic properties and to consider alternatives to avoid, minimize, and mitigate effects to such properties. Colo. Code Regs. tit. 8 § 1504-5; History Colorado: Colorado State Register of Historic Properties Webpage; History Colorado: Consultation Guidance. If the project involves a state action that may affect historic property, the developer should initiate the State Historic Preservation Process. For more information, see:

11-CO-a.3 to 11-CO-a.5 - Have Potential Human Remains Been Discovered?

A hydropower developer who discovers or knowingly disturbs suspected human skeletal remains is required to report their findings. According to Colo. Rev. Stat. §§ 24-80-1301 - 1305, "human remains" means any part of the body of a deceased human being in any stage of decomposition. If the developer discovers potential human remains, the developer should initiate the Human Remains Discovery Process. For more information, see:
