Outstanding Local Streets and Roads Project Awards Program Calls for Nominations

Jan. 31 Deadline

January 14, 2014
Cities and counties can now submit nominations for the Outstanding Local Streets and Roads Project Awards Program.
 
Sponsored by the League of California Cities, California State Association of Counties (CSAC), and County Engineers Association of California (CEAC), the awards program recognizes and raises awareness of the exceptional achievements made by cities and counties to preserve and protect the local street and road system.
 
Forward-thinking cities and counties have made extraordinary efforts to protect and improve the existing local transportation system through a variety of types of projects and programs. Through these exemplary efforts, cities and counties are reducing drive times and congestion; improving driver, bicycle, and pedestrian safety; and ultimately reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Green technologies are less resource intensive, emit fewer harmful air pollutants, and produce less water pollution. Ultimately, a safe, well-maintained, and environmentally friendly local transportation system significantly saves cities and counties, and taxpayers, money in the long-term.
 
Award winners are recognized:
  • At the annual League’s Public Works Officers Institute/CEAC Spring Conference;
  • In Western City magazine, the CSAC Bulletin, and CEAC Newsletters;
  • By press release notifications; and
  • On the League, CSAC, CEAC, and the California Statewide Local Streets and Roads Needs Assessment Project websites.
Submit nominations online by Jan. 31, 2014.
