“Community development is an all-encompassing term. We are looking for projects that contribute to the community in some way, such as fostering growth, sustainability and innovation, improving quality of life, preserving our natural resources or promoting equity and inclusiveness said Rebecca Evans, Chair of the Community Development Award Committee. . “Projects are evaluated in terms of creativity and impact rather than size and cost.”
