Announces the 2022 Winners for the “People In Preservation” Awards

The 39th Annual People In Preservation Awards honors outstanding preservationists who led distinctive projects, ranging from a meticulous reconstruction of the Hotel del Coronado’s original facade to the saving of a small business that has served generations in Ocean Beach. The winners will be recognized for commercial, residential, and cultural landscape restorations; adaptive reuse of old buildings; preservation of local culture; and legacy business rescues.


“Near the western edge of Mission Hills, the 1909 Inspiration Heights Historic District consists of almost 100 residences designed in 20th-century styles. Mission Hills Heritage, the area’s preservation advocacy group, recognized the continuous, intact historic blocks and context of this highly desirable neighborhood, and saw its strong potential as a historic district. However, limited City staffing and resources delayed the research and nomination process for the historic district for several years. With rising concerns over state legislation and the potential for large alterations to this historic tract, Mission Hills Heritage elected to move forward by itself, successfully nominating Inspiration Heights to the National Register of Historic Places.” To read the full article and see all the winners visit the SOHO page
