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. Eligible projects may positively benefit the community in one or several of the following ways:

  • Enhance the visual quality of the built environment
  • Pursue sustainable development and protect the natural environment
  • Promote equity and accessibility to a variety of people, income groups, and abilities
  • Maximize employment and earning opportunities
  • Facilitate heritage preservation
The winner of the Community Development Award will be recognized at the City’s annual Award Ceremony. Questions can be directed to 705-759-5368 or
