Nominations sought for 2005 Heritage Preservation Awards
The Minneapolis Chapter of the American Institute of Architects are calling for nominations for the 14th Annual Heritage Preservation Awards, which recognize projects, individuals, and organizations that preserve, celebrate and enhance Minneapolis' historic character. The awards will be presented on Thursday, May 19, 2005 during National Preservation Week.
Nominations are being accepted in the following categories:
1. Restoration/rehabilitation/adaptive reuse of a historic building or a historic landscape; new addition to a historic building; new construction within a historic district
2. Community education projects (for overall contributions to preservation, rather than for a bricks-and-mortar project)
3. The Steve Murray Award (for an individual who made an excellent contribution to heritage preservation in Minneapolis);
4. The Perseverance Award (for a preservation-related project having difficulty being realized)
5. The Neighborhood Revitalization Program Award (for the effective inclusion of preservation in a neighborhood's NRP plan, a neighborhood's use of NRP funds to reinvest in commercial/residential properties, offer related community workshops, fund new construction and lighting that maintain historic character, etc.)
Award winners will be selected on the basis of the above criteria and the information submitted to a jury of representatives from the Minneapolis Heritage Preservation Commission and the Minneapolis Chapter of the American Institute of Architects. Decisions of this jury are final.
Nominations are due at the Minneapolis Planning Department (Room 210, City Hall) by Monday, April 25, 2005. For more information on submitting nominations for an award click on the link below or go to email@example.com.
