Effective and Accurate Preservation Coverage Award

Landmarks Division of the City of Chicago Department of Planning and Development


The department created the Chicago Landmarks website, www.ci.chi.il.us.landmarks, which communicates with clarity and completeness a wealth of information for the general public, both those interested in preservation and preservation professionals. The site illuminates through text and graphics Chicago’s rich and varied collection of significant architecture and historic buildings and neighborhoods. The creation of the site demonstrates the City of Chicago’s commitment to engage the public in historic preservation by making readily available easy-to-use information that supports reuse and restoration of the city’s landmark buildings.
