The Department of Planning and Zoning in conjunction with the Harford County Historic Preservation Commission is seeking nominations for the 2012 Historic Preservation Awards.

As part of this year's annual celebration, the Harford County Historic Preservation Commission will present preservation awards to individuals and organizations whose contributions demonstrate outstanding achievements in historic preservation in Harford County. Awards will be presented in May in recognition of National Historic Preservation Month.

Nominations and awards may be made in three categories: Preservation Project Award, Preservationist Honor Award and Special Preservation Award. The commission is particularly interested in recognizing projects that enhance citizen understanding of the county's history, projects that can protect and preserve the county's significant historical structures and individuals whose work and vision have preserved the richness of the county's heritage.

Nomination forms can be found online at http://www.harfordcountymd.gov/PlanningZoning/Download/173-966.pdf. The deadline to submit nominations is March 30. Nominations can be mailed to the Department of Planning and Zoning at 220 S. Main St. Bel Air, MD 21014 or emailed to lmmayer@harfordcountymd.gov.

The Historic Preservation Commission is an appointed 11 member board that works closely with the Department of Planning and Zoning to advocate for the preservation of the county's historic and cultural resources. Commissioners meet monthly and are responsible for recommending properties to the county historic landmarks list, assisting property owners on the physical and financial aspects of preservation and cultivating community support for the preservation and promotion of the county's historic and cultural heritage.
