Group seeks nominations for Bay Village citizen, project of year

The Bay Village Community Council is now accepting nominations for the 2012 Bay Village Citizen of the Year and Project of the Year.

Nominations will be accepted until Jan. 6, 2012. Selections will be announced by the Community Council shortly thereafter.

A reception in honor of the recipient and project will be scheduled at a mutually agreeable time.

(Although nominations for Project of the Year are being accepted, this award is not intended to be an annual designation and special projects will be considered based on community impact and the involvement of volunteers and organizations.)

Nomination forms are available at public buildings throughout Bay Village including city hall, the Bay Village library, the K.T. Allen board of education building, or from a member of the Community Council.

They also are available in PDF form via email; contact

The Community Council is comprised of members of local civic organizations and individuals. The organization’s focus is the compilation of a community calendar of events, coordination of events by various civic groups, and sponsorship of the Citizen of the Year/Project of the Year program. All groups are welcome to join as well as individuals who are not members of a civic organization. Annual dues are $20 for an organization and $2 for an individual.

For more information about the Community Council or the Citizen of the Year/Project of the Year awards, call Eric Eakin at 440-669-9686 or via email at
