The City of Carbondale Preservation Commission is honored to sponsor the Annual Historic Preservation Awards. Any structure located within the Carbondale city limits is eligible for a Historic Preservation Award. Carbondale residents are invited to submit nominations for any property that they feel is deserving of an award.
Properties may be nominated for one of the following categories:
Preservation: This includes buildings that have been kept in their original architectural style and are being used for their original purpose.
Restoration: Properties that have been restored to their original style or appearance.
Sympathetic Addition: Construction of an addition to an existing structure that is consistent with the original architectural style of the property.
Compatible New Construction: Any new structure that is consistent with the original architectural style of the neighborhood or that utilizes historic building materials and techniques.
The only stipulation is that all nominations require the owner's permission. We also encourage property owners to nominate their own property. The award winners will be recognized at a City Council meeting in May, in association with National Preservation Month. Download a Nomination Form (PDF) now.
