Join us for a celebration featuring the preservation of rare and iconic properties, the stewardship of community assets and gathering places, and large and small-scale community development successes. Recipients include developers, small business owners, municipalities, cultural organizations and volunteer groups for rescue, revitalization, restoration and rehabilitation projects across the state. Agencies and individuals with significant impact in education, planning and advocacy will also be recognized. Illustrated introductions to the projects and leaders will be followed by a brief conversation with the winners. “We welcome this opportunity to recognize outstanding projects while hopefully inspiring others,” said the Preservation Alliance’s Executive Director Jennifer Goodman.
It is the Alliance’s 31st year of honoring preservation achievement.
