Pittsburgh, PA – PCRG is currently accepting nominations for the Community Development Awards and the Neighborhood Leader Award in Memory of Bob O’Connor. Award recipients will be recognized at the Community Development Summit’s Networking and Awards Reception on May 21st. The deadline for submissions is next Friday, April 19th.
Any project or program that creates a positive, lasting impact on the physical, social, or cultural fabric of a community is eligible for a Community Development Award. Examples of eligible projects include community plans, neighborhood-based real estate development, community greening or art projects, and effective community organizing strategies.
Each year, PCRG recognizes an individual who exemplifies the late mayor’s dedication to neighborhood improvement. A Neighborhood Leader creates a positive impact on his or her community; displays leadership, enthusiasm, and dependability; acts as a role model for others; builds consensus to accomplish goals; and serves on boards and committees. The award recipient will be selected by the O’Connor family.
The Summit is brought to you by PCRG, in partnership with the Urban Land Institute – Pittsburgh District Council and is made possible by the generous support of our sponsors, including Title Sponsor, PNC Bank.
