Historic Preservation Award Nominations

Since 2011 the Historic Preservation Committee and the City Council have granted an annual Historic Preservation Award (a plaque and certificate) to a building or property within the Boulder City Historic District (map to right).  This year the Committee is accepting nominations from the public for consideration.  The Committee will select the property from the nominations received and the award will be presented by the City Council in May, during National Preservation Month.
