Heritage Awards

Delta has implemented a number of awards to recognize heritage preservation contributions. The Heritage Advisory Commission (HAC) selects recipients for Delta’s Heritage Award of Merit and Friends of Heritage Award annually.

  • The Heritage Award of Merit is conferred to projects, individuals or groups for their contribution in conserving a valuable part of Delta’s history. Awards may be granted to urban or rural projects in the area of preservation, restoration, rehabilitation, or adaptive re-use and may be considered for their exterior or interior characteristics. Heritage Award of Merit winners receive a brass plaque to commemorate their heritage building.
  • The Friends of Heritage Award is conferred to a project, individual or group who promotes heritage conservation and awareness in the areas of education, publication or advocacy.

To view past recipients of the Heritage Award of Merit and Friends of Heritage Award please see the Heritage Grants and Awards page.
