The Park Slope Civic Council is accepting nominations for new construction projects that make a “positive contribution to maintaining or enhancing” the neighborhood’s historic identity, as part of its newly created Evelyn and Everett Ortner Park Slope Preservation Awards. The Ortners led a huge effort to preserve historic homes in Park Slope and other Brooklyn neighborhoods and played an important part in the creation of the Park Slope Historic District.
The council is accepting nominations for projects in six categories: exterior restoration, exterior rehabilitation, adapative reuse, new construction, storefront design and neighborhood intervention. Projects must have been completed between January 2009 and September 1, 2014, which is also the application deadline. Applications can be submitted to the council by email or snail mail, and all the details and rules for nominations are here.
