Nominations open for new heritage awards

Nominations are being sought for two new awards to recognize “extraordinary efforts”  towards the conservation, restoration or adaptive reuse of local heritage properties.

Two Whitchurch-Stouffville Heritage Awards will be handed out: one for a commercial property and the other for a residential property. The awards will recognize individuals, corporations and other public or private organizations.

The Heritage Advisory Committee invites you to nominate a property or property owner you believe is eligible for consideration and public recognition.

Nominations will be accepted until March 4. The nomination form and submission guidelines are available at cometogetherws.ca/heritageawards. The winners will be announced in March, followed by an awards presentation in June.

Whitchurch-Stouffville’s “Built Heritage Inventory” lists more than 700 properties that date back to the town’s founding in 1804 through the pre- and post-Confederation eras and into the early 1900s. The properties exemplify a variety of architectural styles and cultural traditions.
