The nomination recognized the restoration of the 4 Square historic cottages at the corner of W. Aspen Ave. and N. Bonito St. and for establishing Townsite CLT which makes the homes permanently affordable.  “This work is the best example of [historic] preservation work in Flagstaff where the character of the buildings was restored and the function rehabilitated without any additions or compromises on preservation standards (from the nomination).  We had no idea of the nomination and were surprised and humbled to learn we would receive an Arizona Governor’s award.
