COLUMBIA —Residents can nominate homes, office buildings, public spaces or buildings they like for the Historic Preservation Commission's Most Notable Properties 2012.

Properties must be at least 50 years old, located within Columbia and have architectural or historical features that add to the city’s social or aesthetic value, according to a news release.

“The properties may be endangered, derelict, recently restored or nicely maintained,” according to the release. “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.”

Nomination information can be downloaded from the city's website or by calling the Planning and Development Department at 874-7239. Nominations will be accepted until Nov. 1.

Applicants should provide supporting information about the structure or location of the building, such as newspaper articles, historic photos and written histories of the people who built, owned or lived there.
