The 36th Annual Atlanta Urban Design Commission Awards of Excellence

Through its annual “Awards of Excellence” competition, the Atlanta Urban Design Commission honors those projects, programs, individuals and organizations that have significantly contributed toward the enhancement of the City of Atlanta’s built environment, the preservation of our physical heritage, and the sympathetic balance between the old and the new.
Historic Oakland Foundation was presented an “Award of Excellence” in Historic Preservation for its restoration and preservation work on the mausolea of Oakland Cemetery.  That restoration work, funded by a Save America’s Treasures grant and matching funds from individuals and foundations, was completed at the end on 2012.  The award was accepted by Restoration Manager, Dustin Hornsby, and Executive Director, David Moore at the ceremony held at a 2012 Award of Excellence winner, Benjamin E. Mays High School, this past Thursday.
The Atlanta Urban Design Commission reviews plans and projects for historic buildings and districts in the City of Atlanta, as well as for City of Atlanta owned properties and rights of way, works of public art, and parks; all of which effect the aesthetic, cultural and historic quality of the City of Atlanta’s urban experience.  The Foundation is honored by this award.
Congratulations to the restoration team!
