Nominations open for 2017 Heritage Community Recognition Award

Nov 6, 2017 | Arts and Culture News | General

Nominations are sought for the Town of Orangeville’s third annual Heritage Community Recognition Award. The award program honours homeowners each year who have put considerable time, effort, resources and care into their heritage properties.

A heritage property is any building or structure of historical, architectural or cultural significance that was built before 1920 in the Town of Orangeville. The nominated property does not have to be an individually designated property under Part IV of the Ontario Heritage Act.

The Heritage Community Recognition Award was established to recognize, promote and encourage the preservation, ongoing maintenance, restoration, rehabilitation, renovation and/or adaptive re-use of heritage properties.

More information and nomination forms can be obtained at the Municipal Offices at 87 Broadway or on the Town website. The nomination submission deadline is November 30, 2017.

For more information on nominations for the Heritage Community Recognition Awards, contact Lorena Hurtubise, Committee Administrator, Heritage Orangeville, at [email protected] or 519-941-0440 Ext. 2256.
