Will County honored for surveying County’s rural structures

The Will County Land Use Department Historic Preservation Commission has been awarded an honorable mention in the 2014 National Alliance of Preservation Commission’s Excellence Awards program in a “best practices” category.

The NAPC Excellence Awards recognize the outstanding efforts of local preservation, historic district and landmark commissions and boards of architectural review. The program highlights best practices and accomplishments by historic preservation commissions at the local level, for both large and small communities, to protect historic districts and landmarks through legislation, education and advocacy.

Will County was recognized in the category of “Best Practices: Identification/Registration” for its efforts in surveying the County’s rural structures. To date, the project has surveyed 18 of the 24 townships with more than 6,500 structures identified. The remaining six townships will be surveyed as funding becomes available.
