Every year Historic Ithaca, Inc. presents awards for sensitive restoration and preservation projects within Tompkins County.  Any preservation, restoration, rehabilitation or adaptive reuse project completed within the past two years may be nominated for a 2017 award.

Nominations will be reviewed by a panel of preservation professionals and awards made based on such considerations as the importance of the project to the long-term preservation of the building; adherence to basic preservation principles as outlined in the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation; and the impact, or potential impact, of the project on the surrounding community.

We encourage consultation with our staff before submitting an application, and we are happy to provide guidance in preparing the application. Awards will be presented at Historic Ithaca’s Annual Preservation Awards Ceremony in May of 2017.

Nominations must be received by 5:00 pm Friday, March 31, 2017 and must include all information requested. For more information, contact Christine O’Malley at Historic Ithaca, (607) 273-6633 or christine@historicithaca.org.
