Alive Project Wins Award

The Infrastructure Assistance Coordinating Council (IACC)has awarded the City of Grandview an award for the 2010 Grandview Alive Downtown Project. The award was given this week at the IACC’s annual conference in Wenatchee. There were 20 nominations and six winners in six different categories. Grandview won the People’s Choice Award for Best Community Impact.

The purpose of the IACC Awards is to acknowledge outstanding achievement by IACC members, local governments and individuals whose efforts best showcase the mission of the IACC. Nominees should clearly demonstrate a commitment to communities, the infrastructure that make communities livable, creative problem solving, or demonstrate a lifetime of success in these areas.

Nominations were made in one of the following categories:

Best community impact project;
Best transportation project;
Best solid- or wastewater project;
Best drinking water project;
Best local capital facilities project;
Best use of creative solutions; and
The coveted Joe Mitschelen Lifetime Achievement award for public service.

The nominees are evaluated based upon how well local communities were involved in the project nominated; net benefit to the communities served; a clear pattern of sustainable community development and a creative use of funding and cost savings.

The IACC is a nonprofit organization made up of staff from state and federal agencies, local government associations, nonprofit technical assistance organizations, tribes and universities. It’s been in existence for over 20 years.
