The Ruth Chenoweth Conservation Achievement Award
This award recognizes outstanding conservation achievement for property of historical significance to Oak Cliff. Treatment of these historic properties may have included preservation, conservation, rehabilitation, restoration, reconstruction, adaptive use or a combination of these design principles.
The criteria for the award:
• This award recognizes outstanding conservation achievement pertaining to a property of historical significance in Oak Cliff. That may include preservation, conservation, rehabilitation, restoration, reconstruction, adaptive re-use or a combination of these design principles.
• Consideration includes the treatment of hard-scape and landscape on the existing site. The property - building and its total site - does not intrude upon the surrounding neighborhood but rather compliments and benefits it.
• Recipients of this award are members of a preservation team that have risen above and beyond the ordinary in their efforts to strengthen and preserve the character and integrity that is our history and our future. Heritage Oak Cliff holds them in our highest regard for their efforts.
