The Preservation League of New York State is seeking nominations through Feb. 10 for its 2017 Excellence in Historic Preservation Awards, which recognize significant achievements in historic preservation throughout the state.
“Preservation and reuse of our historic buildings is fundamental to the economic revitalization of our cities, towns and villages,” said Jay DiLorenzo, president of the Preservation League. “The restoration of our historic neighborhoods, Main streets and underutilized buildings continues to create jobs, provide housing, promote tourism, stimulate private investment and conserve energy, resources and open space. Our annual awards program allows us to highlight projects that offer new examples of best practices in historic preservation.”
The awards will be presented in May. The Preservation League encourages nominations that may provide case studies or models incorporating energy efficiency, adaptive reuse or the state’s Rehabilitation Tax Credit program.
