Do you know of a project or place that you think makes a positive impact on our city?
The call for nominations is now open for Kitchener’s Great Places Awards (until April 26th). This program includes a variety of categories – for large and small projects – that demonstrate design excellence in Kitchener for:
- Urban Design
- Neighbourhood design
- Student Projects (conceptual projects)
- Master Planning (conceptual projects)
It has to be completed fairly recently (last 4 years or so with specific criteria provided for each award). If someone is interested in nominating and they aren’t sure, you can contact Janine Oosterveld (519-741-2200 ext. 7076 | firstname.lastname@example.org)
Think about the placemaking interventions that have taken place around the neighbourhood (chalkboards, Little Free Libraries); they might be smaller scale, but they really make a difference in our community.
Later in the process, there is also a People’s Choice award category where everyone can vote on the project they like best of the nominated/ shortlisted projects.
