The Calvert County Board of County Commissioners announces that nominations are being accepted for the 27th annual Calvert County Historic Preservation Awards. May is Historic Preservation Month and the board is honored to carry on the tradition of recognizing residents who have worked to preserve Calvert County heritage and historic properties.
Have you noticed an old building or tobacco barn that someone restored? Does someone in your community record its history or the stories and memories of its longtime residents? Have you ever thought, “Whoever fixed up that old place did a great job.”? Those are just a few examples of the kind of outstanding efforts that can be submitted in three award categories: project awards, service awards and awards for preservation education.
Projects eligible for recognition this year must have been completed by Jan. 1, 2015. Nomination forms are available at the Department of Community Planning and Building in the County Services Plaza, the Calvert County Historical Society and Calvert Library branches. Nomination forms are also available online at www.co.cal.md.us/historicpreservationform and must be submitted no later than Friday, May 15, 2015.
For more information or to request a nomination form, contact Kirsti Uunila, Historic Preservation Planner at 410-535-1600, ext. 2504 or e-mail to UunilaK@co.cal.md.us
