The Cape May Point Taxpayers’ Association (CMPTA) announced the creation of the Cape May Point Heritage Awards April 20.
The awards will recognize historic building preservation efforts, new development, and investments in the environment that contribute to Cape May Point's quality, character and values. CMPTA created the awards to celebrate and bring awareness to those individuals and groups who preserve and innovate Cape May Point for future generations to enjoy.
Award recipients will be selected from nominations received from association members, community leaders and leadership of the Cape May Point Taxpayers’ Association. Nomination criteria and other details are being finalized. The first awards will be announced this summer.
Additional information will be provided through the BULLETIN and other CMPTA publications.
According to CMPTA President Constance Campanella, “Cape May Point has been captivated by concern over the loss of historic properties. This award honors that concern and adds recognition for new development and investments in our environment. Years from now, some of today’s new homes and the success of our efforts to protect and enhance our natural environment will be revered along with those historic buildings we treasure today.”
