NSB Awards Historic Preservation For Residential And Non-Residental Owners

By on March 28, 2018 in Community Stories

New Smyrna Beach, FL– The New Smyrna Beach Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) awarded residential and non-residential designations for the 2018 Donnadine Miller Memorial Historic Preservation Awards.

After reviewing the criteria against each residential project, the HPC voted to award the 2018 Donnadine Miller Memorial Historic Preservation Award in the residential category to the owner of 411 Magnolia Street, Ms. Rita Ann O’ Hara.

After reviewing the criteria for each non-residential project, the HPC voted to award the 2018 Donnadine Miller Memorial Historic Preservation Award in the non-residential category to the owner of 208 Magnolia Street, Mr. Blaine Gregorio.

Candidates are judged on historic significance, charm, and landscaping. Plaques will be presented at the May 23, 2017, City Commission meeting to each of the recipients.

The City created the Historic preservation award program in 2002.  In 2009, the award program was renamed in memory of Donnadine Miller, who was an active volunteer and member of the community. Mrs. Miller had served as Chair of the Historic New Smyrna Beach Preservation Commission; worked as an amateur archaeologist; and participated in numerous other events and activities. While award recipients are encouraged to apply for local landmark designation, receiving an award does not place any restrictions on the property.
