Historic Preservation Month, May, is fast approaching! The City is currently accepting nominations for the annual Historic Preservation Award. This is the tenth anniversary of the award, which highlights notable areas within the City’s Historic District. We previously featured last year’s winner and three other notable projects via a video series produced by the City’s Historic Preservation Committee. Links to those four videos can be found by clicking below:
- 2020 Winner: 1342 Denver Street
- Runner Up: Ash Street Duplex Cottages (508 to 526 Ash Street)
- Runner Up: Boulder City Company Store (525 Avenue B)
- Runner Up: Bureau of Reclamation Administration Building (Colorado Street)
To qualify for the award, the property must be within the city’s historic district and “maintain and enhance the architectural, historical, and cultural heritage of Boulder City”. Additionally, the award will be given to the property that best meets the following criteria:
- The exterior of the building/property, as visible from the street
- The property or feature is open to residential, commercial, institutional, religious, parks, landscapes, streetscapes, etc.
- The building/property can include a historically appropriate remodel, addition, or new construction, or for examples of preservation or historical restoration
- The award is not based on the number of nominations for the property
The Historic Preservation Committee will review the nominations submitted and select the awardee in April. As such, all nominations must be submitted through Sunday, April 18, 2021. The award recipient(s) will receive a plaque and certificate from the Historic Preservation Committee and City Council in May. They will also be recognized with an individual video that will be posted to the City’s website and social media accounts during May.
