2014 Carver Heritage Preservation Award Nominations
The City of Carver and the Carver Heritage Preservation Commission are pleased to accept 2014 nominations for the annual Carver Heritage Preservation Award, to go to the year’s most outstanding historic preservation effort in the Carver Historic District. Previous awards went to the Kelzer family (1870 Andrew G. Anderson House, 208 W. Main Street), to Craig Norby (1898 Charles L. Dauwalter House, 413 Broadway), to Eric and Shelly Rudolf (1858 Dr. William Griffin House, 400 Oak), and to Gregg and Meg Witt (200, 204, and 208 Broadway).
The award will go to the owner(s) of properties who make the year’s best effort at preserving or restoring the exterior of any store, house, barn, or structure located in the Carver Historic District. The award may also be given for historically sensitive enhancements to the Historic District, including additions, porches, outbuildings, or the infill of empty lots.
After nominations have been received, the Carver Heritage Preservation Commission will view nominated properties and decide the annual award winner by a majority vote of commissioners present at the November HPC meeting. While the award is intended to be an annual one, there may be some years when no significant preservation effort took place, or when no property has been nominated. The award, a plaque, will be presented by the Mayor of Carver in December at a Carver Holiday Party, or the first practical Carver City Council meeting thereafter. A temporary sign may also be placed for a year outside the annual award-winning property, but only if so desired by the owner.
Anyone can nominate a property for the 2014 award by using the following form and returning it to the Carver City Hall by 4:30 p.m. Friday, November 7, 2014. Click here for a copy of the nomination form.
