Columbia's Historic Preservation Commission is now taking nominations for the City's Most Notable Properties for the year 2014. The deadline for submission is September 30, 2013.
Properties need to be at least 50 years old, located within the City of Columbia corporate limits, and have architectural or historical characteristics which contribute to the City's social and/or aesthetic resources. The properties may be endangered, derelict, recently restored, or nicely maintained. They may be a private home, public or private workplace or any other space, public or private. They may be modest or grand, hidden away or in public view.
Once applications have been received, the Historic Preservation Commission evaluates the nominations and selects a diverse set of properties which they believe best represent the above qualities.
Online and downloadable applications are available on the City of Columbia's website at http://www.gocolumbiamo.com/community_development/planning/HistoricPropertiesSearch.php. The application and supporting materials such as photos should be mailed to the Historic Preservation Commission, c/o City of Columbia Community Development Department, P.O. Box 6015, Columbia, MO 65205. Applications may also be dropped off at Community Development's Third Floor Service Center in City Hall, 701 E. Broadway.
