People In Preservation

During National Historic Preservation Week SOHO recognizes preservation projects and individuals in San Diego County who have made significant contributions to the field of historic preservation with the People In Preservation Award. Past winners have received these awards for individual historic preservation achievements, historic education or research, building restoration, rehabilitation, adaptive reuse, and landscape preservation to name a few.

These awards are an opportunity for SOHO to recognize the efforts of property owners and the work they perform in preserving the historic resources of the area. The awards also encourage historic preservation and acknowledge that good preservation can be found in the restoration of the most modest residence to the grandest mansion. From our earliest structures to mid-century contributions, and from the private to the public sector.

The guidelines for the awards include consideration of sensitivity to the historic integrity of the building and its site, the preservation of original historic fabric or landscape, the use of historic research materials to document decisions made during the process, and the skill of the craftsmanship. Historic preservation includes a broad category of activities, such as stabilization and conservation, restoration, adaptive reuse, strategic planning, policy making, public programming, and much more.

Nominations from the general public are welcome! This is your opportunity to make your nomination for the person, group, business, organization, or government entity you believe deserves recognition for their accomplishments in preservation. Previous nominations not selected to receive an award may be revised, expanded, and resubmitted.

Nominations due by April 2, 2004
