The Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) and the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) are inaugurating a joint recognition program called the Bay Area Metro Awards to honor the unsung heroes doing the hard work to make the Bay Area a better place to live, work, and play by improving our region’s mobility, affordability and comity.
Nominations for the Bay Area Metro Awards can be submitted online at www.abag.ca.gov/awards/BayAreaMetro2018.html.
The deadline for submissions is Friday, Nov 16, 2018.
What projects, people or programs are making a real difference to solve the Bay Area’s housing and transportation problems? Is there a local government agency or other organization that has helped streamline your commute, boost smart growth, preserve natural habitat or support affordable housing in your community? Are you impressed by someone’s work to make streets safer for school kids, by local efforts to calm busy streets or to promote social equity? Is your bus driver exceptionally friendly and helpful?
Winners will be selected by a jury representing ABAG, MTC, and the community.
A recognition ceremony is planned for May 2019.
E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call Leah Zippert at 415-820-7995 or Terry Lee at 415-778-5352, with questions.
