Historic Ithaca’s 2022 Preservation Awards
ITHACA—Historic Ithaca will hold its annual Preservation Awards on September 15th from 5:30 to 7:30 pm at La Tourelle. This event is open to the public with a $20 donation to Historic Ithaca per attendee. Light fare and refreshments will be provided.
Every year Historic Ithaca, Inc. presents awards for sensitive restoration and preservation projects throughout Tompkins County. Any preservation, restoration, rehabilitation or adaptive reuse project completed within the past two years is eligible for an award in 2022.
“We are delighted to recognize projects in our community for the design, craftsmanship, artistry, and other trade skills that are applied to restoring and renewing our architectural heritage,” says Executive Director Susan Holland. This year’s winners include a range of projects completed throughout Tompkins County recognizing excellence in exterior rehabilitation, creative reuse of salvaged material, and a public education and community history project.
The winner of the Joseph O. Ciaschi Award for Preservation Excellence will be presented to Lynn Cunningham Truame for her lifetime contribution to preservation and for her many years of working at the intersection of affordable housing and adaptive reuse in our community.
Nominations are reviewed by a panel of preservation professionals and awards are made based on such considerations as the importance of the project to the long-term preservation of the building; adherence to basic preservation principles as outlined in the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation; and the impact, or potential impact, of the project on the surrounding community.
