Saratoga Springs Preservation Foundation Requesting Nominations: 2020 Preservation Recognition Awards

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Each May at the Annual Meeting, the Preservation Foundation celebrates National Preservation Month by recognizing building owners with Preservation Recognition Awards.

Unfortunately, due to the uncertainty of the impacts of the Coronavirus, the call for nominations was delayed and the awards ceremony will not be able to take place in person. The Foundation does not want to delay any longer the recognition of projects. Therefore, it will announce award winners in June digitally. 

The Foundation seeks nominations for projects that reflect a dedication to preserving, developing, and reusing historic buildings and landscapes. Those nominated may be individuals, organizations, businesses, or community representatives. Nominations will be assessed 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.

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 incorporate exteriors of private property, interiors or exteriors of public spaces, and must be 50 years or older. Additions to historic buildings and new in-fill construction can also be nominated. All projects must have been finalized within the past year.

To nominate a project or ask any questions about the awards please contact Nicole Babie, Membership & Programs Director, at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Please submit nominations by June 5, 2020 and include the address of the project; a description of the work completed; and, if possible, name of the property owner and photographs.
