The purpose of the Historical Resources Commission (HRC) is to act as the official advisor to the City of Reno on matters relating to the historic preservation of cultural resources and buildings. The Commission recommends to the Council possible uses and funding options for historic buildings, places and sites. The HRC also suggests policy and ordinance changes to the City Council relating to historic building and sites.
Historical Resources Commission Awards
The City of Reno 's Historical Resources Commission will be presenting its annual awards for outstanding achievements in Historic Preservation.
Awards are given in six categories. Two categories -- Distinguished Service and Advocate -- are given to an individual or group. Three categories recognize outstanding work related to the preservation of Residential or Non-Residential properties and Historic Landmarks. The final category honors an outstanding Historical Project, such as a publication, research project, media production, or other initiative.
The Historical Resources Commission first introduced its Historic Preservation Awards in 1997. Previous recipients include the Chism House, Lake Mansion, neon sign collector and restorer Will Durham, the Historic Reno Preservation Society (HRPS), and the Depot.
This year's recipients will be announced and recognized by the City of Reno in May as part of National Preservation Month.
