The City of Reno’s Historical Resources Commission is seeking nominations for its annual historic preservation awards program. The deadline is Friday, April 5, 2019.

Awards are given in six categories. Two — Distinguished Service and Advocate — are given to an individual or group. Three categories recognize work related to the preservation of Residential or Non-Residential properties and Historic Landmarks. The final category honors an outstanding Historical Project, such as a publication, research project, or media production.

The Historical Resources Commission first introduced its preservation awards in 1997. Recipients include The Chism House, Lake Mansion, neon sign collector and restorer Will Durham, the Historic Reno Preservation Society (HRPS) and The Depot.

This year’s recipients will be announced and recognized by the city in May as part of Nevada’s Historic Preservation and Archaeological Awareness Month.

The nomination form, descriptions of the six categories, and a list of past recipients are available at Reno.gov. For more information, email Brooklyn Oswald at [email protected].

  1. If there was the equivalent of a Raspberry Award, there would be a tie; Jacobs Entertainment for the pillage of the Fourth Street corridor, and the City of Reno and it’s so-called neighborhood Conservation plan for allowing it unchecked.
