COLUMBIA — Columbia’s Historic Preservation Commission is taking nominations for the city’s Most Notable Properties 2011. The deadline for submissions is Oct. 1.
More than 100 properties have been designated since the program’s inception in 1998. If chosen, the property is celebrated at an event in February.
To be eligible, properties must be at least 50 years old, located within Columbia's city limits and have architectural or historical characteristics which contribute to the city’s social and/or aesthetic resources. Properties may be considered in any condition. Unlike some historic designations, no restrictions are placed on selected properties.
Submission materials, as well as photos of past years’ Most Notable Properties, can be found on the city's website.
The Department of Planning and Development can be reached at 874-7239.
