The Planning Advisory Committee is accepting nominations until April 29 for the 2016 Community Development Award.
The Community Development Award recognizes exceptional community development projects. Every year, City Council presents this award to a local business or organization with the goal of highlighting innovative ideas and inspiring others to meet the standards set by successful projects.
“Community development is an all-encompassing term. We are looking for projects that positively impact the community in some way, such as creating a sustainable and aesthetically pleasing development, enhancing quality of life, preserving our natural resources, or promoting equity and inclusivity,” says Paul Caldbick, Chair of the Planning Advisory Committee. “Projects are evaluated for creativity and impact rather than size and cost.”
Previous award winners include: Savoy’s Jewellers, The Trading Post and Frontier Village, the Canadian Bushplane Heritage Centre, Muio’s Restaurant, the Waterfront Walkway, and Lyon’s TimBr Mart.
Nominations can be submitted until 4:30 p.m., Friday, April 29 as follows:
