The Harford County Department of Planning and Zoning, in conjunction with the Harford County Historic Preservation Commission, is seeking nominations for the 2014 Historic Preservation Awards.
As part of this year’s celebration, the 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. The Commission is particularly interested in recognizing projects that enhance citizen understanding of the county’s history, projects that protect and preserve the county’s significant historical structures, and individuals whose work and vision have preserved the richness of the county’s heritage.
Nomination forms can be found online at http://www.harfordcountymd.gov/PlanningZoning. The deadline for submission of nominations is February 28, 2014. Nominations may be mailed to the Department of Planning and Zoning c/o Ivy Freitag, 220 South Main Street, Bel Air, MD 21014, or may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Historic Preservation Commission is an eleven-member board of appointed volunteers that works closely with the Department of Planning and Zoning to advocate for the preservation of the county’s historic and cultural resources. Commission members meet monthly and are responsible for recommending properties to the County Historic Landmarks list, assisting property owners on the physical and financial aspects of preservation, and cultivating community support for the preservation and promotion of the county’s historic and cultural heritage.
