Since 2011, the Boulder City Historic Preservation Committee and City Council have granted an annual Historic Preservation Award (a plaque and certificate) to recognize the hard work of our local citizens in their efforts to maintain and enhance the architectural, historical, and cultural heritage of Boulder City. The Committee will select an awardee in April.  The award recipient will be recognized by City Council via individual video to be posted online to the City’s webpage and social media accounts during Preservation Month in May.

Is your restoration project a winner? Have you seen a preservation project you think is award-worthy? We invite you to nominate projects you believe are most deserving of this honor!  Nominations are open now through Sunday, April 18, 2021.
