Nominations Open for the Historic Preservation Award

Historic District MapSince 2011, the Boulder City Historic Preservation Commission and City Council have granted an annual Historic Preservation Award (a plaque and certificate) to recognize the hard work of our local citizens in their efforts to maintain and enhance the architectural, historical, and cultural heritage of Boulder City. The Commission will select an awardee in April. The award recipient will be recognized by City Council via an individual video posted online to the City’s webpage and social media accounts during Preservation Month, May 2024.
