The Cambridge Historical Commission is seeking nominations for its 2014 Preservation Awards program. Nominations for projects completed between January and December 2013 are due at the commission no later than noon Feb. 28.

Residents and property owners, neighbors and visitors, architects and contractors are invited to nominate projects that contribute to the preservation of Cambridge’s historic character and built environment. Projects may involve restoration, rehabilitation, adaptive use, neighborhood conservation, landscape preservation, archaeology or preservation education, and can include private homes, institutional buildings or commercial and industrial properties.

The commission has celebrated outstanding contributions to historic preservation throughout the city each year since 1997. Members say nominating a project is “an excellent way to recognize the good stewardship of property owners and the hard work of fine craftsmen and building professionals.”

An awards reception will take place during Preservation Month in May.
