Saratoga Springs Preservation Foundation Request for Nominations

SARATOGA SPRINGS — At the Saratoga Springs Preservation Foundation’s Annual Meeting in September, the Foundation will recognize individuals and organizations who have invested significant time and money to undertake preservation projects in the past year.  The Preservation Recognition Awards celebrate the winners’ hard work and commitment to being a good steward of their property with members of the community and friends of the Foundation.

The Foundation seeks nominations for projects that reflect a dedication to preserving, developing, and reusing historic buildings and landscapes. Those nominated may be individuals, organizations, businesses, or community representatives. Nominations will be assessed by the Awards Committee according to the following criteria: project design sensitivity to the historic character and environment of the property; project execution represents appropriate techniques and preservation practice; degree of difficulty faced and appropriateness of solutions were applied. 

The project must be located in the city of Saratoga Springs but does not have to be located in a historic district. Projects must be for buildings 50 years and older and can range from small, removal of vinyl siding or restoring original wood windows, to large, an entire building rehabilitation or adaptive-reuse. Additions to historic buildings and new in-fill construction can also be nominated. All projects must have been completed within the past year.
