The Cultural Heritage Board Award of Excellence Program is an award bestowed on property owners who have made special efforts in restoring, rehabilitating or improving existing homes and businesses, or, in the imaginative design of new construction. The award recognizes single-family and multi-family residences, non-residential buildings and features, such as landscaping and art in public places.
The purpose of the award is to encourage improvement and beautification efforts in our community and to recognize special undertakings by property owners. Restoration efforts help to exert a positive influence on the entire neighborhood and provide an incentive to other property owners in upgrading their property. These accomplishments are sought out by the Planning Commission and Cultural Heritage Board for public recognition.
The Cultural Heritage Board Award of Excellence Program has been in existence since 1967. In the past 40 years, 300 homes, businesses and sites have received the Award of Excellence. Nominations are screened by the Cultural Heritage Board, a nine-member citizen body. The final selections are reviewed and awarded by the Planning Commission to property owners in a public meeting.
