The Preservation Achievement Awards were held in the Hall of State at Fair Park – what a beautiful and appropriate forum! Architects and builders were honored for their work in rebuilding and revitalizing historic properties. Council member Veletta Lill was also honored (and roasted) for her incredible support for historic preservation in Dallas. Former council member Craig McDaniel and former mayor Ron Kirk were on hand to roast Ms. Lill.
Veletta’s experience and dedication to historic preservation is one of the reasons that her endorsement – and Craig McDaniel’s – is so important to me.
I was honored at last year’s Preservation Achievement Awards with the Stewardship Award for my work on the M Streets Conservation District. I am very proud to be in such great company!
