Historic Preservation Award Nominations

Since 2011 the Historic Preservation Committee and the City Council have granted an annual Historic Preservation Award (a plaque and certificate) to a building or property within the Boulder City Historic District (map to right).  The Committee will select the property from the nominations received and the award will be presented by the City Council in April, in time for Boulder City's Historic Preservation Day on May 11th during National Preservation Month.
