Community Improvement Awards
Recognizing outstanding recent architecture, design, and construction in Houston Heights, both new and renovated.
Perhaps one of the easiest ways to participate in preserving and celebrating 2018 Houston Heights architectural heritage is to submit nominations for the 2019 Community Improvement Awards. These awards recognize recent construction or renovation in the neighborhood (both residential and commercial) that, true to the name of the award, we all feel improves upon the historic yet ever changing look and feel of our community’s landscape. The awards are judged by a panel of local experts and presented at the Annual Volunteer Appreciation Dinner in February, where we hope to see you as well. For now, we are simply seeking your input through our open nomination process.
The criteria are quite straightforward. We are seeking nominations of residences and businesses either built or renovated in the last three years (2016-2018) that may have caught your eye as uniquely contributing to the neighborhood. Our guiding question has always been, “Which building have you seen that you feel makes the Houston Heights an even better place than it was before?” Read the full eligibility criteria below, and please keep an eye out as you drive, walk, jog, and cycle through the neighborhood over the coming weeks.
The four categories are:
- Commercial New Construction
- Commercial Renovation
- Residential New Construction
- Residential Renovation
We will be accepting nominations through January 27, 2019.
Submit nominations by filling out this form:
Completing the nomination form takes a few minutes and calls for several details that help the judging process, so we appreciate you taking the time to fill out to the best of your ability.
You can also complete and mail this form to:
- Houston Heights Association, ATTN: Community Improvement Awards Committee, 107 W. 12th St., Houston, TX 77008-6907
We thank you in advance for participating. Feel free to email email@example.com with any questions.
Finally, save the date for the 45th Annual Volunteer Appreciation & Awards Dinner on Sunday, February 24, when the awards will be presented along with honors to some of the most dedicated volunteers in the neighborhood.
