Delaware & Lehigh - Nominate Community Achievements in Bucks County

Is there a person, business, or organization that is making Bucks County a better place to live? Consider nominating them for the 2009 Landmark Towns of Bucks County Community Achievement Awards. The awards are intended to recognize and celebrate those whose work complements the mission of Landmark Towns.

Residents, business owners, and municipal officials are encouraged to nominate people, businesses and organizations from the Bucks County community who meet the specific category criteria listed in the Call for Nominations brochure. The nomination form can be dowloaded here, picked up at the borough municipal buildings, or requested through email at [email protected].

“The countless hours that these individuals, businesses, and not for profit organizations provide significantly contribute to a better quality of life, making the four Landmark Towns better places to live, work and play,” says Regional Main Street Coordinator Donna Boone. “The staff and board of directors intend for this event to serve as an annual reminder of the positive impact they have on the climate of the Landmark Towns.”

The awards ceremony honoring the finalists will be held at the Yardley Country Club on April 29, 2009.

Landmark Towns of Bucks County, a project of the D&L, is a regional revitalization initiative of four boroughs along the Delaware Canal (Bristol, Morrisville, New Hope and Yardley) that have traditional downtown business districts. The Landmark Towns project is designed to help these small towns breathe renewed economic life into their business districts, while preserving and enhancing the industrial and cultural heritage they share. All of these boroughs have exhibited the will and interest to improve their quality of life, preserve historic resources, and enhance economic conditions.
