Florida Municipal Achievement Awards 

 

10th Anniversary Municipal Achievement AwardBegun in 2009, the goal of the Florida Municipal Achievement Awards program provides municipalities the opportunity to receive deserved recognition for superior and innovative efforts in three categories: City Spirit Award, Florida Citizenship Award, and Environmental Stewardship Award.

The cities of Clermont, Miami Beach and Largo were recently announced as the 2018 winners of the 10th Annual Florida Municipal Achievement Awards. Each city took the top spot in one of three award categories:

City Spirit Award – City of Clermont
The City Spirit Award recognizes a single, specific citywide effort to successfully address a local need. The City of Clermont’s winning entry, The Oakhurst Project, changed the crime-ridden neighborhood of Oakhurst into a crime-free neighborhood through a citywide effort that allowed police to spend a portion of their time beautifying the neighborhood and connecting with residents.

Florida Citizenship Award – City of Miami Beach
The Florida Citizenship Award focuses on city projects or programs that build stronger, more participative residents. The City of Miami Beach’s winning entry, MB Resident Connect, is an electronic system that allows residents and others to set up keywords of interest and receive alerts when their topic is published on an agenda.

Environmental Stewardship Award – City of Largo
The Environmental Stewardship Award focuses on city programs that promote conservation, improve and protect environmental conditions, and/or provide environmental education and outreach programs within a city. The City of Largo’s winning entry, Freecycle Event, allows staff to collect donated items that are used to create a marketplace. Residents receive a reusable bag that they use to ‘shop’ for free from thousands of items.
