(Santa Monica.) The Santa Monica Conservancy seeks nominations for its 2023 Preservation Awards. Each year the Conservancy honors exemplary projects and contributors to the preservation of Santa Monica’s architectural and cultural heritage. The Preservation Awards will be announced during a special presentation at the Annual Meeting in early summer.
Since 2004, winning projects have included residences as well as commercial and institutional buildings of all sizes. These projects have entailed restoration, renovation, rehabilitation, stewardship, and adaptive reuse as well as additions to historic buildings and homes. Awards are also presented to individuals for their stewardship of historic properties as well as to individuals and groups for community service as volunteers and advocates of preservation. Studies of historic districts and other preservation planning work is also eligible.
This year, the Conservancy has integrated the concept of resiliency into their stewardship award category in recognition of the fact that historic properties and associated projects often contribute to community resilience through their energy efficiency and preparedness for climate impacts.
