Planning Award Dinner Invitations
The Awards Committee of the Sussex County Planning Board is hosting the 11th Annual Sussex County Planning Awards Dinner at the Lake Mohawk Country Club on Thursday, October 4, 2007.
All are invited to attend, and the cost is $37 per person. The program will also feature a tribute to Senator Robert E. Littell, highlighting his illustrious career of public service to Sussex County.
The Sussex County Planning Awards were established in 1997 in the interest of promoting and recognizing excellent planning practices throughout Sussex County. Twenty nominations were received this year, and the Awards Committee has toured all of the nominated sites and reviewed the planning documents. All nominations are highlighted at the dinner as a Planning Awards Tour is presented with photos of the sites, then the award winners are announced. Local banks made donations to the Newton High School Agriscience program, and the students create beautiful centerpieces for the tables.
The award categories are: Special Planning Report (such as a Master Plan); Rehabilitation or Adaptive Reuse; Beautification; Commercial, Industrial or Mixed Use Projects; Public Building; Non-Profit; and Residential . The deadline for registration is Monday, October1, 2007, and we encourage all who are interested to attend. For further information and the registration form, go to the "Planning" section of the County website or contact Alice Brees, Sussex County Planning, Division at (973) 579-0500.
