Do you know either an individual, or an organization, or even a preservation project that has had significant community value?
Bainbridge Island Historic Preservation Commission is seeking nominees for its fourth annual Blakely Awards, which are sponsored by the commission.
Nominations are due by March 28.
The Blakely Award for Project of Excellence honors outstanding historic preservation or a restoration project of significant community value. An individual or organization also can vie for the Blakely Award for Preservation Leader award, which recognizes community leadership in promoting historic preservation.
Nomination forms for the awards can be found on the city of Bainbridge Island’s website on the Historic Preservation Commission’s web page – under the Government tab – or alphabetically under Documents & Forms.
The awards will be announced in May during Historic Preservation Month.
For additional information, contact Heather Beckmann, an associate planner on the city’s planning staff, at 206-780-3754.
