Preservation Award winners range widely, from sensitive restoration, rehabilitation, and adaptive reuse projects, to groundbreaking advocacy and education efforts by individuals and groups. We encourage submissions from throughout Los Angeles County that illustrate the value and power of historic preservation. Construction projects may be commercial, residential, or institutional. We also encourage nominations for historic landscape projects and significant contributions to preservation education or program development.

Past recipients include the Dr. Ralph J. Bunche Peace and Heritage Center, Oaklawn Bridge and Waiting Station, Palomar Senior Apartments, Point Fermin Lighthouse, City of Huntington Park Historic Preservation Ordinance, and Valley Municipal Building, among more than 200 others.

To qualify, projects must have been completed by December 31, 2009, be located in Los Angeles County, and meet nationally recognized standards for the treatment of historic properties and landscapes (in the case of construction or landscape projects).

Winners will be selected by an independent jury of leading experts in architecture, historic preservation, and community development. The awards will be presented at a luncheon in May 2010.

The deadline for submitting nominations is February 1, 2010. Each nomination has a non-refundable application fee of $50. You can download a nomination form below or from our website, or request one by calling the office at (213) 623-2489.
