SPOKANE, Wash. - A Spokane group working to preserving historic buildings is honoring Spokane City Council Member Lori Kinnear for her dedication to preserving historic buildings.
According to a press release, the Spokane Preservation Advocates will award the District Two leader with its 2018 Advocacy Award, in large part because of an ordinance she championed earlier this year to protect historic structures.
The ordinance created more protections for historic buildings, created new incentives for developers to restore historic buildings, and created a new process for designating entire historic districts on the local Spokane Registry of Historic Places.
Kinnear will receive the award during the SPA's Fifth Annual Historic Preservation Awards ceremony. That's happening Sunday, November 4 at 6 p.m.
