Lambert, Constantine honored for historic preservation efforts

Metropolitan King County council members Kathy Lambert and Dow Constantine were recognized Monday, Dec. 10, for their heritage preservation work with 2007 Landmark Deeds Awards for Public Service from the Washington Trust for Historic Preservation.

The awards are presented to public officials who demonstrate leadership on issues connected to preserving and retaining Washington's heritage and who understand the critical role our historic resources play in providing livable, sustainable communities statewide.

Councilmember Lambert, who represents District 3 in rural northeast King County including Snoqualmie Valley, led the development of the Barn Again program to preserve Washington's historic barns. The program provides technical assistance to barn owners and offers grants for stabilization projects designed to retain these iconic structures. The first allocation to initiate the program was included in the county's 2007 budget. The program received more than 30 grant applications requesting more than $500,000 for preserving barns. The success of this program sparked broader barn preservation efforts at the state level.
