The City of Frederick is once again joining the National Trust for Historic Preservation in the This Place Matters initiative. This Place Matters is a photo-sharing campaign in which people take photos of themselves in the places that matter most to them. Then, by sharing the photos, they help spread the word about these places with the rest of the City and the nation. To participate, either download or print a This Place Matters sign from the City’s website or pick one up from the Planning Department, Municipal Office Annex, 140 West Patrick Street. Take a digital photograph of yourself holding the sign in whatever place matters most to you in The City of Frederick. Then email the photograph to firstname.lastname@example.org. The Historic Preservation Awards Committee will select winning photos to be announced at the Historic Preservation Awards Ceremony. Creativity is encouraged! The deadline for submitting photographs is April 3, 2015.
Nomination forms and This Place Matters signs are available at www.cityoffrederick.com/preservation (click on Resources) or in the Planning Department, Municipal Office Annex, 140 West Patrick Street. The awards ceremony will take place in May 2015 with the date and time to be announced.
