Deadline nears for nominations for Bay Village citizen, project of the year

Nominations for the Bay Village Community Council’s 2014 Bay Village citizen of the year and project of the year awards are due by Friday, Jan. 10.

Selections of recipients will be announced by the Community Council soon afterwards. 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 board of education, 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. (Dues may be waived at the discretion of the president of Community Council.)

For more information about the Community Council or the citizen of the year/project of the year awards, call Eric Eakin at 216-386-5997 or via email at
