ALBANY, NY (12/18/2014)(readMedia)-- The Preservation League of New York State is seeking nominations for its 2015 Excellence in Historic Preservation Awards, which recognize significant achievements in historic preservation throughout New York State. The postmark deadline for nominations is February 12, 2015. The awards will be presented on May 13, 2015 in New York City at the historic New York Yacht Club.
"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 could one day provide new examples of best practices in historic preservation."
The League especially encourages nominations that may provide case studies or models incorporating energy efficiency, adaptive reuse, or New York's Rehabilitation Tax Credit program.
The Preservation League awards program is supported by a generous grant from the Arthur F. and Alice E. Adams Foundation.
