The Preservation League of New York State is seeking nominations for its 2010 Excellence in Historic Preservation Awards, which recognize significant achievements in historic preservation throughout New York State. The postmark deadline for nominations is February 11, 2010. The awards will be presented during the Preservation League’s Annual Meeting on May 12, 2010 in New York City at the historic New York Yacht Club. “Too many historic buildings throughout New York State are currently vacant, underutilized, and deteriorating,” said Jay DiLorenzo, President of the Preservation League. “Our annual Awards program allows us to share preservation success stories that may one day serve as inspiration to others. By highlighting meaningful contributions in the field of historic preservation, we encourage high standards for other projects, foster revitalization of our historic neighborhoods and downtowns, and celebrate New York’s incomparable architectural legacy.”
Nomination forms will be mailed by January 1, and are available for download as a PDF. For additional information on the awards please contact the Preservation League office at 518-462-5658 x17- or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
