Nominations open Monday for ARC’s 2010 Developments of Excellence Awards!

Each year, the Atlanta Regional Commission, in partnership with the Livable Communities Coalition, honors trend-setting developments in the Atlanta region with the Developments of Excellence Awards.  Nominations are once again being accepted for this prestigious award.  Past winners have been honored for exemplifying urban revitalization, transit accessibility, affordable housing, conservation and sustainability.

The award is given to developments in the 10-county metro region, or within LCI study areas in the 20-county region, that exemplify the policies and practices of ARC’s Regional Development Plan. Developments are eligible for selection as a Development of Excellence if they advance the policies and best development practices of the Regional Development Plan. Past award winners include developments that show how great design can create a “positive framework for the future” today and showcase how our community is creating innovative and successful developments for the future.

Nominations are encouraged from developers, builders, private, public and nonprofit entities for their recently completed or near-complete projects. Nomination instructions will be posted Monday, July 26 on ARC’s website. Deserving projects should be nominated by Thursday, August 19. Winners will be announced at ARC’s annual State of the Region Breakfast on November 5. The theme of this year’s State of the Region breakfast is “Innovate for a Sustainable Region.”
