2014 Lion Awards to highlight flood impacted properties

Built in 1912, The Baird/Miller residence was officially designated as a municipal historic resource by The City in September 2013. This property, like many others, was impacted by the 2013 floods but has undergone flood recovery work to ensure it will be part of Calgary’s landscape for generations to come.

The Calgary Heritage Authority Lion Awards are presented biennially to celebrate the projects and people who have contributed to preserving Calgary’s heritage. In recognition of the extraordinary recovery efforts undertaken at heritage sites after the 2013 floods, the Calgary Heritage Authority will be presenting a special flood recovery award at the 2014 Lion Awards. There are six Lion Award categories: Resource Conservation, New Building Design, Landscape, Community Vitalization, Advocacy and Awareness, and Heritage Tradespeople/Craftspeople.

Nominations and applications are being accepted until June 2.
