From Harford County government:
(Bel Air, MD)– The Harford County Department of Planning and Zoning, in conjunction with the Harford County Historic Preservation Commission, is seeking nominations for the 2010 Historic Preservation Awards. As part of this year’s annual celebration, the Harford County Historic Preservation Commission will present Preservation Awards to individuals and organizations whose contributions demonstrate outstanding achievements in historic preservation within Harford County.
Awards will be presented in May in recognition of National Historic Preservation Month. Nominations and awards may be made in three categories: Preservation Project Award, Preservationist Honor Award, and Special Preservation Award.
Nominations may come from the community, individuals, and organizations, or the Commission itself. The Commission is particularly interested in recognizing projects that have demonstrated that historic preservation can be a viable strategy in renewing life in older neighborhoods, projects that can protect the County’s historic and scenic rural landscapes, and individuals whose work and vision have preserved the richness of the County’s heritage. When deemed appropriate, the Commission may designate multiple recipients for any or all awards in a given year.
The deadline to submit nominations is March 19th. Nominations can be mailed to the Department of Planning and Zoning at 220 South Main Street or emailed to Sarah Corey at email@example.com.
For additional information please contact Sarah Corey in the Department of Planning and Zoning at 410 638-3103 extension 1369.
