Richmond’s Planning and Building Services Department is now accepting nominations for the 5th Annual Historic Preservation Awards.
The purpose of the Historic Preservation Commission’s awards program is to increase public awareness of Richmond’s heritage by recognizing individuals, organizations, businesses, and agencies whose contributions demonstrate outstanding commitment to excellence in historic preservation, local history or promotion of the heritage of the City.
In addition to public and private buildings or structures, eligible historic preservation projects include media, publications, presentations and exhibits, parks, burial grounds, public art, oral history, theater productions, events and video presentations.
Nomination forms are available online at www.ci.richmond.ca.us/preservationawards. Or pick up a nomination form at the Planning and Building Services Department’s information counter at City Hall, 450 Civic Center Plaza, 2nd Floor, weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Last year’s award recipients were the City of Richmond and the Save the Plunge Trust for Rehabilitation of the Richmond Municipal Natatorium.
The deadline to submit nomination is 5 p.m. on March 30. Awards will be presented during May, which is National Preservation Month.
