The City of Nevada is now accepting nominations for the 2012 Nevada Revitalization Award. The Nevada City Council created the Nevada Revitalization Award in 2010 to recognize property owners who have enhanced the community by making significant exterior improvements to their individual properties that have, in turn, had a positive impact on the surrounding area. The Revitalization Award recognizes individual efforts and seeks to encourage future reinvestment in the community.
Residential as well as commercial properties are eligible for the award.
Nominations will be accepted until Friday, Feb. 15, 2013 at 5 p.m.
The award will be presented during the second council meeting in March.
The winners of the first award in 2010 were Mike and Barbara Hutchison for remodeling an old building at 122 E. Cherry to eventually house a hardware store and the 2011 selection was Spring Village Apartments, 700 W. Garfield.
In addition to Spring Village there were five other nominees for the 2011 award: Branham Diesel, 601 N. Osage Blvd., Morrison Post Insurance, 211 W. Cherry, The Art Shop, 104 E. Cherry, Hardee's, 200 W. Austin, The First Christian Church, Austin and Cedar and Academy of Cosmetology & Esthetics, Pruitt and Austin -- the building on the northwest corner of Woods Supermarket parking lot.
Both the 2010 and 2011 winners were presented unique trophies created by local businesses. In 2010 the award was made by Normans Sheet Metal and in 2011 the award was created by the Missouri Welding Institute.
