Nominations due for Bay Village citizen, project of the year

The Bay Village Community Council is now accepting nominations for the 2016 Bay Village Citizen of the Year and Project of the Year. Nominations will be accepted until Friday, Jan. 8, and selections will be announced by the Community Council soon afterwards.

Although nominations for Project of the Year are being accepted, this award is not intended to be an annual designation. Special projects will be considered based on community impact and the involvement of volunteers and organizations. Citizen of the year nominees, either individual or couple, must be Bay Village residents that have provided significant community service without monetary reward.

Download a nomination form (Citizen of the Year | Project of the Year) or pick one up at City Hall, the Bay Village Branch Library, and from members of the Bay Village Community Council. Forms may be submitted via email to or mailed to Bay Village Community Council, 350 Dover Center Road, Bay Village, OH 44140. Electronic nominations will be accepted at the following links: Citizen of the Year submissions:; Project of the Year submissions:
