Certified Local Governments

The Certified Local Government (CLG) Program is a preservation partnership between local, state and national governments focused on promoting historic preservation at the grass roots level.  A community must show both the state and National Park Service that they are committed to historic preservation.  They can do this by establishing a historic preservation ordinance to protect historic resources in their community; maintain a register of historic resources and participate in the National Register process.  Nevada has four CLGs:  Carson City, Las Vegas, Reno.  Storey County is also a CLG by virtue of the Comstock Historic District Commission.
