The whole nostalgia and old buildings fad seems to have caught Kalamazoo's fancy. Now the Kalamazoo Historic Preservation Commission is looking for nominees for Certificates of Merit.For some twenty years the Commission has been making these awards "preservation related projects in the city."

Here's some basic information; To be nominated for an award a project must:

  • be located in the city of Kalamazoo - the KHPC especially encourages nominations outside the historic districts.

  • maintain the historic character of the building or resource

  • have work substantially completed within the past five years

  • have a complete nomination submitted by Monday, March 6, 2017 at 5:00 pm

If you're serious about this, here's a link to the document that has more information.

There's an awards ceremony in May, which is National Historic Preservation Month.
