Like rain on your wedding day …

Though the future of the Bluebonnet Hills local historic district remains up in the air, Preservation Austin has given a “special recognition” award to the organizers of the district for their advocacy and neighborhood preservation. “Regardless of the outcome of their efforts, the committee commends the core team of Blue Bonnet Hills supporters who have diligently followed the City’s Local Historic District nomination process, diligently documenting their neighborhood, developing design standards to guide future development, educating their fellow neighbors and elected officials, and spending many long hours at public hearings to advocate for their neighborhood,” wrote the jury. “They have overcome significant obstacles and shown great commitment to protecting the priceless character of their community.” Preservation Austin also honored preservation advocate Lin Team, the Covert Monument Restoration on Mount Bonnell, Fair Market on East Fifth, Seaholm Power Plant and the Paramount Theatre, among others. More information about the 2015 Preservation Merit Awards is on Preservation Austin’s website.
