The office of Ward 6 Councilman Tommy Wells is accepting nominations through the end of today (Monday) for the Livable, Walkable Awards. The 8th annual awards will honor local people and organizations at a gala Wednesday, Dec. 3.
“The Livable, Walkable Awards celebrate the leadership, commitment and vision of people who are making our great city even greater,” Wells said in a statement. “To create a truly livable, walkable community, it takes leadership and vision — not just from those elected to office, but also from our neighbors, city employees, civic organizations and local businesses.”
The award categories are:
- The Neighbor Award
- The Business Award
- The Community Organization Award and
- The Public Service Award
Last year’s winners were Rev. Ruth Hamilton of Westminster Presbyterian Church, Rev. L.B. West of Mount Airy Baptist Church, Labyrinth Game Shop, the French Street Neighborhood Association, the Ward 6 Core Team and Ron McBee of ANC 6D.
The awards will be given during a free event at the Atlas Performing Arts Center from 7 to 9 p.m. Dec. 3.
