The Foundation is requesting nominations of projects that reflect a commitment to preserving, promoting and reusing historic buildings and landscapes. The project must be located in the City of Saratoga Springs; but does not have to be located in a historic district. Projects are to include exteriors of private property and interiors or exteriors of public spaces. The building or landscape must be 50 years or older. Those nominated may be individuals, organizations, businesses or municipal representatives.
Projects can range from small such as removal of vinyl siding or restoring original wood windows to large, such as an entire building rehabilitation or adaptive-reuse. New construction projects can also be nominated such as compatible new additions and in-fill construction. Projects must have been completed within the past year.
Nominations will be evaluated by the Awards Committee according to the following criteria: project design sensitivity to the historic character and environment of the property; project execution represents appropriate techniques and preservation practice; degree of difficulty faced and appropriateness of solutions applied.
