DANA is looking to recognize the very best (and also shed light on the worst) in Downtown Austin to help encourage a vibrant urban environment for our city and to call out some of the aspects of downtown that hinder us from getting to that greater vision.
Nominations can be of buildings, policies or other aspects of living downtown.
Also, we would like to request nominations for a downtowner who works hard to make a difference in our urban community. It is named in honor of our friend, former Board Member and legal advisor, David Weaver, who contributed greatly to this organization before sadly passing away.
Submit your nominations online here by end of day on Friday, February 5th!
All submissions will be compiled anonymously and voted on by the Board at the February Board retreat. Awards will be given out at this year’s annual meeting in February!
