Ontario City Council Presents the 17th Annual Model Colony Awards for Historic Preservation

The Ontario City Council presented the 2017 Model Colony Awards for Historic Preservation at their meeting on May 2, 2017 at 6:30 PM at Ontario City Hall, 303 E. B Street.  This year, Ontario’s theme for Nationwide Historic Preservation Month is “Redefining Preservation” as proclaimed by the Ontario City Council.  Across the nation this May, communities are discovering/re-discovering, honoring, and sharing the unique heritage of their local region. In Ontario, the City Council will recognize and celebrate those members of the community that may not consider themselves traditional preservationists, but through their efforts, contribute to the preservation of Ontario’s cultural heritage. This year’s award categories include the George Chaffey Memorial Award, Merit and Rehabilitation.
