City of Langley Street of the Year Nominations

When I've walked through Langley City, I’ve seen various “Street of the Year” signs along some streets in the community. I honestly didn’t think that this award still existed, but I received a news release for 2014 Street of the Year nominations last week.

You can nominate a street by emailing or mailing: Langley City Hall at 20399 Douglas Crescent, City of Langley, BC, V3A 4B3. You must include:

-The name of the street
-A photo of the street
-A 50-word or less description of what makes the street special
-Nominator’s name and contact information

The winning street will be announced at the City of Langley Community Day Celebration on June 21. A “Street of the Year” must:

-Looks clean and well-kept
The street is free from litter, has well-maintained boulevards (including grass or other plantings) and conveys an overall feeling of ownership and pride.

-Demonstrates a sense of community
A sense of community may be evidenced in any number of ways, including through organized block parties and neighbourhood watch groups, or by having extra helpful neighbours.

-Displays unique features
Unique features may include both physical and non-physical features that make a street stand out as a special place.
