Debbie Quillin
District Delivered! Award

Debbie QuillinThanks to its handsome historic homes, gardens and footpaths, a drive or walk through Mission Hills is always charming and refreshing. Highly valued as one of San Diego's best-preserved early neighborhoods, the rich heritage of Mission Hills is better protected after a dedicated preservationist spent seven arduous years surveying, researching, and writing about historic homes built between 1908 and 1942. They are the creations of Edward F. Bryans, William Sterling Hebbard, Alexander Schreiber, and others, working in a variety of styles. Our winner focused on expanding the size of the Mission Hills Historic District, which has 75 homes and the Fort Stockton Line with its 107 homes. Her efforts led to the historic designation of 68 more residences by the city's Historical Resources Board last June, increasing the district to 143 historic homes. Districts are a major economic driver for a community and once established they make for far less work for city staff, which in turn saves even more resources! Grassroots efforts, determination, and attention to detail make district designations possible and they are by far one of the best ways we can save our heritage.
