May is Preservation Month, an effort spearheaded by the National Trust for Historic Preservation that began in 1971 as Preservation Week and was expanded to a month-long celebration in 2005.
In Pasadena, historic preservation month has been celebrated since 2004 with an annual awards program that recognizes positive contributions to historic preservation in the city. Awards are given to property owners, designers/architects and contractors for exceptional historic resource restoration or rehabilitation projects. Awards have also been given to recognize individuals that have contributed to multiple projects, for positive infill projects in historic neighborhoods, and for historic preservation educational efforts.
The 2015 Historic Preservation Awards event will be held on June 4, 2015 at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium Exhibition Hall. The City is currently accepting nominations for the 2015 awards program. Any interested party may submit a nomination using this nomination form. Nominations are due by 5:00 pm, Monday, April 27, 2015.
