Burlington's commitment to historic preservation is reflected in the City's designation as a Certified Local Government community by the National Park Service in 1991. This unique partnership between federal, state and local government provides valuable insight and perspective from the local level to state and federal regulators and decision makers. In turn, local governments have access to technical assistance and matching grant funds to further local preservation goals.
