The Historic Preservation Commission is currently accepting applications for 2014 Historic Preservation Awards from homeowners, architects or contractors who have completed qualifying jobs in River Forest since January 1, 2009.

The River Forest Historic Preservation Commission supports and encourages homeowners, builders and other professionals who help preserve the historic character of our Village. An awards program was established by the Commission in 2009 in order to support these efforts.

Nominations must be received on or before June 5, 2014. The awards will be announced at the Commission’s regularly scheduled June 26, 2014 meeting. Multiple awards may be given each year. The nominated structure need not be in a historic district and may be a residential (single family or multiple unit), commercial, public/institutional or religious structure. For more information please contact Village Hall at 708-366-8500.
