The Village of Winnetka's Landmark Preservation Commission is now accepting nominations for its Preservation Awards program. The awards are an annual program that recognize exterior construction projects that have helped preserve the history, charm, and character of Winnetka. Since demolitions so often make the news, it’s important to honor projects which restore, rehabilitate, and update older existing structures. Preservation maintains the character of Winnetka and fosters a sense of place. It also has the added benefit of being sustainable and friendly to the environment.
Nominate your house or any other recently renovated building in Winnetka that you admire. Award categories include Restoration, Rehabilitation, and New Construction for projects that have been completed in the last five years. Residential, commercial/multi-family residential, and public/institutional properties are eligible.
Nomination forms can be downloaded here or obtained at Village Hall (510 Green Bay Road). Nominations for this year’s program are due by May 27, 2022. The award winners will be announced at a Village Council meeting later this year. Entries or questions can be sent to Christopher Marx in the Village’s Community Development Department (847-716-3587).
