Nominations open for Bay Village citizen, project of the year

Do you know of a Bay Village resident whose service to the community is worthy of recognition? Has a special project made a difference in the city? The Bay Village Community Council is now accepting nominations for the 2017 Bay Village Citizen of the Year and Project of the Year. Nominations will be accepted until Friday, Jan. 20, and selections will be announced by the Community Council soon afterwards.

Citizen of the year nominees, either individual or couple, must be Bay Village residents that have provided significant community service without monetary reward. 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.

Nominations are accepted online (Link: Citizen of the Year | Project of the Year), or via a mail-in form (Download: Citizen of the Year | Project of the Year). Mail-in forms may also be picked up at City Hall or the Bay Village Branch Library.

The Bay Village Community Council is where Bay’s civic groups come together. Representatives from member groups meet quarterly to discuss upcoming events and initiatives, share ideas and look for collaboration opportunities. Annual dues are $20 per organization.
