Nominations Sought for Historic Preservation Award
The Historic New Smyrna Beach Preservation Commission is accepting nominations for the 2013 Donnadine Miller Memorial Historic Preservation Award. The nomination deadline is January 31.
Buildings at least 50 years old or sites associated with a historic event are eligible.
“The City created the Historic preservation award program in 2002,” Planning Manager Gail Henrikson said. “The award promotes pride in the City’s past and increases awareness and appreciation for buildings that contribute to the history and character of New Smyrna Beach.”
Winners of the 2013 awards will be presented a bronze plaque at a March City Commission meeting.
In 2009, the award program was renamed in memory of Donnadine Miller, who was an active volunteer and member of the community, Henrikson said. Miller served as Historic New Smyrna Beach Preservation Commission Chair, she worked as an amateur archaeologist and participated in numerous other events and activities.
“While award recipients are encouraged to apply for local landmark designation, receiving an award does not place any restrictions on the property,” Henrikson added.
Applications are available at City Hall, the New Smyrna Museum of History and online at www.cityofnsb.com.
