Landmark Inn a Finalist for People's Choice Award!
This year, we are honored to have the Landmark Inn State Historic Site project nominated for Best Restoration within a city of less than 50K people in the 2017 Texas Downtown Association President's Awards Program! The awards program recognizes outstanding projects, places, and people of Texas downtowns and is sponsored by the Texas Downtown Association (TDA). TDA was established in 1985 to connect and serve communities that are committed to downtown vitality. The membership organization is an independent, statewide nonprofit that represents cities and towns of all sizes, economic development corporations, chambers of commerce, local organizations, small businesses, and individuals.
One hundred and fifteen entries were submitted in twelve different categories from communities across the state. Judges reviewed entries online and then met in person to make their final selection of award finalists and winners. The panel included: Kent Collins, Centro Development; P.A. Geddie, County Line Magazine; Lois Rodriguez, Texas Highways; and Evan Thompson, Preservation Texas.
As a finalist, the project also qualifies to be in the running for the People's Choice Award. The winner of this award will be determined by the number of likes each project receives through the organization's facebook page. So, we humbly ask for you to use the link below and vote for the Landmark Inn project - the deadline is October 20th! Thank you for all the support!
