2014 Heritage Award Applications Now Available

The City of New Rochelle is pleased to announce the sixth year of its Heritage Award Sign Program, which recognizes historically significant properties in New Rochelle. Nominations are now being accepted for properties that exemplify the New Rochelle’s significant historical and cultural heritage.
Entries may be submitted by individuals, organizations, businesses or municipal representatives of properties for one or more of the following categories:
• Residences older than 50 years
• Public or quasi-public structure (example: house of worship, home of an organization, etc.) with significant ties to New Rochelle’s history
• Stellar restoration and/or adaptive re-use
• Home of nationally prominent individual
• Significant architect or architectural style
• Landscape or landscape feature (eg. cemeteries, stone walls, signs; excepting gardens

Guidelines and nomination forms are available on the City’s website or at the Mayor’s Office in City Hall. The deadline for nominations is April 18, 2014.

“The Heritage Awards celebrate distinctive properties that reflect New Rochelle’s rich architectural history,” said Mayor Noam Bramson. “By raising public awareness about our past, we help ensure that history remains a vital part of our future.”

To date, 33 properties have received local designation since the program’s inception in 2007.
These gems relating New Rochelle’s remarkable past are residential, quasi-public and public buildings contributing to the continued preservation of the City’s historical and cultural heritage—the key factor in the City’s Heritage Award program initiated by the Heritage Task Force. The Heritage Task Force was organized by Mayor Bramson to help initiate projects that would increase awareness and appreciation of the community’s vast historical treasures. Comprised of residents qualified in historic preservation, local history and landscape design, the committee developed the Heritage Award program to recognize the scores of New Rochelle properties that are important to the community’s extraordinary 325 year history.
