NLC announces 2010 Awards for Municipal Excellence
The Washington-based National League of Cities (NLC) has launched its 2010 Awards for Municipal Excellence. Begun in 1989, the awards recognize various municipal programs across the country that improve the quality of life for residents.
Beginning in February, cities of all sizes may submit nominations for programs that form successful and productive partnerships or collaborations, effectively manage resources, create innovative government policies, or implement projects with tangible positive results. Two winners will be selected in each of four population categories. The deadline for all submissions is May 5.
The eight winning programs will receive awards of either $1,000 or $2,000, and will be publicly recognized at a ceremony at NLC’s Congress of Cities Conference and Exposition in Denver from Nov. 30 to Dec. 4. The awards are sponsored by Denver-based CH2M HILL.
