City Seeking Nominations for Environmental Awards
The City of Davis is accepting nominations for the annual Environmental Recognition Award. This program recognizes efforts in the community that benefit the environment and overall Davis sustainability efforts. Davis businesses, residents and community-based organizations are encouraged to submit nominations in three categories: businesses; non-profit organizations/agencies/schools or other community based groups; and individual/groups, each requiring residency or work completed in Davis.
Last year’s five awardees were Repower Yolo and River City Bank in the business category; Martin Guerena, individual category; Tree Davis, Non-Profit Organization; and Yolo County Housing, special recognition category.
Several years ago, the Environmental Legacy Award was added to celebrate the City of Davis Centennial, and is intended to recognize events, programs or milestones that have made a difference in Davis’ environmental quality of life over a significant period in Davis’ history. This category is decided at the discretion of the Natural Resources Commission and City Council.
The first Legacy Awards was dedicated to Davis bike lanes in 2017, the 50th anniversary of the first bike lane installations in the nation, and the second, in 2018, to Unitrans on its 50th anniversary of providing transit services to UC Davis students and the Davis community.
These awards, started in 1995 by the Natural Resources Commission and presented by the Davis City Council, are at a milestone 25th year for the program.
More information on the Environmental Recognition Awards can be found on the City of Davis web site or by contacting Kerry Loux, Sustainability Coordinator in the Community Development and Sustainability department at email@example.com.
The submission deadline is Friday, March 15, 2019. Awards will be presented at a City Council meeting in April or May 2019.
