Nominations invited for the Sault Ste. Marie Community Development Award


The Sault Ste. Marie Community Development Award Committee is pleased to announce that nominations are now being accepted for the 2019 Community Development Award.

resented annually by City Council, the Award recognizes exceptional community development projects from local businesses or organizations with the goal of highlighting innovative ideas and inspiring others to meet the standards set by successful projects. 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.

“Community development is an all-encompassing term. We are looking for projects that contribute to the community in some way, such as fostering growth, sustainability and innovation, enhancing quality of life, preserving our natural resources, or promoting equity and inclusivity,” says Robert Burns, Chair of the Community Development Award Committee. “Projects are evaluated for creativity and impact rather than size and cost.”
