This new program was created to recognize outstanding restoration, renovation and development projects that foster historic preservation within the city. Awards will be presented at a ceremony on Wednesday, January 16 at 7 p.m. in the Park View Room (230 Park Avenue).
The five recipients of 2018 Worcester Preservation Awards represent a range of efforts and illustrate that preservation can take many forms, from rehabilitation or long-term care of an existing building, to restoration of public art, to new buildings that respect and reflect their historic surroundings.
