2017 Smart Growth Awards Honorees Announced

Vision Long Island anounces the 2017 Smart Growth Awards Honorees:

Vision Long Island is Proud to Announce the Honorees for the 2017 Long Island Smart Growth Awards!

Please join us for the 16th Annual Long Island Smart Growth Awards Friday, June 9th from 11:00am to 2:00pm at the Crest Hollow Country Club. This annual event will showcase the best in class of real people and projects that represent the transformation of our downtowns and investment in infrastructure for Long Island communities.

These last few years has shown tremendous progress with nearly 13,000 units of transit oriented housing approved, over a billion dollars of Federal and State funds invested in our local infrastructure, and nearly 60 communities working on downtown revitalization plans.

We have received over 45 deserving nominations and the winners start with a Regional Leadership Award to John Cameron from the Long Island Regional Planning Council.  This year’s Community Leadership Award will be presented posthumously for Delano Stewart Publisher of Point of View.

The project and organizational honorees include the Town of Riverhead and Conifer Realty for housing choices with Peconic Crossing in downtown Riverhead; David Kilmick, LGBT Network, and D&F Development for housing choices with LGBT Housing in Bay Shore; Livingston Development Group for revitalizing communities with The Villas at Glen Cove; Nassau County and the Town of Hempstead for revitalizing communities with the Baldwin Revitalization project; Longwood Library, Concern Middle Island, and Gail Lynch Bailey for mix of uses in Middle Island Revitalization; Mill Creek Residential and the Village of Mineola for transit-oriented development for the Modera, Hudson House, and Searing Avenue project; C.L.I.M.B. for transportation choices; LIPA and Deepwater Wind, with the South Fork Offshore Wind Farm for clean energy; and the Village of Great Neck Plaza and Nemat Development for certainty with TOD zoning.

The event is annually attended by a broad array of community, government and business leaders. Last year’s luncheon featured over 900 guests so secure your spot now!  

The Sponsorship levels for the event remain the same at $2,000, $5,000, $10,000, $15,000 and a lead sponsorship of $20,000 (only one).   All sponsorships come with a table of ten tickets, banner display and logo display on all materials. Higher sponsorship levels include seats on dais at lunch, additional tables, video sponsors, journal ads etc.  Journal ads are also available as well.
