The Somerville Historic Preservation Commission (SHPC) has extended the deadline to submit nominations for the 2013 Preservation Awards. Nominations will now be accepted through Monday, December 3rd. The Awards will honor Somerville property owners that have performed significant restoration or maintenance efforts on either designated historic buildings, or on non-designated buildings erected before 1962.
Eligible property owners must have completed restoration and preservation work between January 2011 and December 2012. Owners may nominate their own property, or may be nominated by others in the community. Eligible projects include, but are not limited to, removal of inappropriate siding materials, repair or restoration of damaged or missing architectural details, removal of enclosed porches or inappropriate windows, repainting with historic colors, and additions that are “historically sympathetic.”
Nomination forms are available on the City Website at www.somervillema.gov/historicpreservation, the first floor lobby of City Hall, or the Preservation Commission’s Office on the second floor of City Hall.
For additional information, contact Brandon Wilson, Executive Director or Kristi Chase, Preservation Planner, at 617-625-6600, ext. 2525 or via e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com).
