Bay Village Community Council accepting nominations for annual honors

As this year of divisiveness, virus variants and supply chain problems comes to a close, it’s refreshing to turn our attention to the efforts of those who have worked to make things better, one good deed at a time. Bay Village is filled with dedicated, selfless volunteers working with civic groups or on their own to help others in the community and around the world.

The Bay Village Community Council has just opened the nomination period for the annual Bay Village Citizen of the Year and Project of the Year awards, to recognize those who have offered their time and talents in the service of others.

Citizen of the Year nominees, either individual or couple, must be Bay Village residents that have provided significant community service without monetary reward. Although not necessarily an annual designation, special projects will be considered for Project of the Year based on community impact and the involvement of volunteers and organizations.

Forms are also available at City Hall, the Bay Village Branch Library, and from members of the Bay Village Community Council. Completed forms may be submitted via email to or mailed to Bay Village Community Council, 350 Dover Center Road, Bay Village, OH 44140.

Nominations will be accepted until Friday, Jan. 21, and the selection committee will meet shortly afterward to choose this year’s winner.

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 normally $20 per organization, but the Council has waived the fee for 2022 in light of budgetary constraints caused by the pandemic.
