Billig will pick up the award from the Association of Monterey Area Preservationists at its Monday March 22 meeting.
AMAP President Mike Dawson says Billig won "because of her untiring effort to preserve the Flanders mansion."
Last week, the Flanders Foundation won a court battle in its decade long fight to keep the 1920's era mansion off the market. Monterey County Superior Court Judge Kay Kingsley ruled that the city's Environmental Impact Report on its proposed sale of Flanders was inadequate. The ruling invalidated last November's election in which an overwhelming majority of Carmelites voted to approve a sale.
The AMAP meeting will be held at the Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History at 6pm.
