SOMERVILLE - The Somerville Historic
Preservation Commission (SHPC) has extended the deadline to submit nominations
for the 2013 Preservation Awards. 
Nominations will now be accepted through Monday, December 3rd.  The Awards will honor Somerville
property owners that have performed significant restoration or maintenance
efforts on either designated historic buildings, or on non-designated buildings
erected before 1962. 

Eligible property owners must have completed restoration and preservation
work between January 2011 and December 2012. 
Owners may nominate their own property, or may be nominated by others in
the community.  Eligible projects
include, but are not limited to, removal of inappropriate siding
materials, repair or restoration of damaged or missing architectural details,
removal of enclosed porches or inappropriate windows, repainting with historic
colors, and additions that are "historically sympathetic."
