Most Endangered! 2019 - Call For Nominations (Historic Kansas City)
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com -

Historic Kansas City has used its annual list of Most Endangered Buildings to spotlight important examples of architectural and cultural heritage that were at risk of destruction or irreparable damage.

Do you know of a threatened historic place? If so, nominate it for the list of the Most Endangered. Nominations will be accepted until Monday, July 8, 2019

Inclusion on the Most Endangered list has proven beneficial for Kansas City’s historic places. For some properties, nomination to the list is a last chance for survival.

A “Most Endangered” designation:
• Focuses media and public attention on the plight of threatened historic places
• Spurs positive action and generates public support
• Creates opportunities for preservation solutions
What is an endangered property?
• A threatened historic place important to the community
• An irreplaceable local landmark fallen into disrepair
• An architecturally significant building or structure that’s been abandoned
• A historic district or building type threatened by poor planning or public policy

If you know of a historic resource that fits these descriptions, do something!

Nominate the property for inclusion on the Most Endangered list and make the effort to preserve it heard around Kansas City.

Please return nominations by Monday, July 8, 2019.

Every year Historic Kansas City publishes the Most Endangered List to raise awareness and advocate for our city’s historic buildings and resources. Historic KC’s Most Endangered list is a non-exhaustive roster of notable places threatened with demolition or extreme alteration. The list is based on information publicly available (and circulated) at the time of deliberation and allowing a reasonable interval for preparing the list and publishing it. The list is a call for action from all stakeholders and is not a compendium of endangered historic places in our region or even all significant historic places threatened.

Nomination Eligibility Criteria:
- There must be a degree of endangerment by owner neglect, proposed demolition, rezoning, or redevelopment and/or other factors.

- There must be evidence of local support, or, clear potential for building local support, for preservation of the property.

- The property must be listed on or eligible for listing on the Kansas City Register of Historic Places or the National Register of Historic Places.

Selection will be made based on the properties’ significance as determined by Historic Kansas City and not solely on the degree of endangerment.

To be considered for selection, please include:
- Completed nomination form, attachments and supplemental materials.
- Answers to additional information requested.
- Up to three images of the property (digital or prints).
- Any other documentation (newspaper clippings, reports, etc.) to support the nomination.
