Nominations Now Being Accepted For the Mayor’s Urban Design Awards
Nominations for the second annual Mayor’s Urban Design Awards are now being accepted through Friday, Nov. 16. The awards will recognize projects that demonstrate exceptional urban design and foster the city’s commitment to sustainability and livability. The awards will be presented at Mayor Oscar B. Goodman’s State of the City Address at the Las Vegas Springs Preserve on Jan. 8, 2008.
The awards will recognize projects that cultivate walkways and streets that are shared public spaces, promote safety, conserve resources, seamlessly link to their surroundings and are pedestrian friendly. A category for historic preservation has been added this year bringing the total number of categories to four. The three other categories include buildings and their environs, public places and public art.
Last year’s winners included building one of the World Market Center, the Lewis Street Pedestrian Corridor and El Jardin, an art installation at the East Las Vegas Community Senior Center.
Nomination forms are available at the front counter of the Development Services Center located at 731 S. Fourth St. or online . Nominated projects must be within city limits and be constructed by Dec. 31, 2007, to qualify for the award.
Nominations will be reviewed and ranked by a five-member volunteer committee. Those rankings will be forwarded to Mayor Goodman, who will select the award winners.
