2006 Mayor’s Design Awards Announced: Mayor Hickenlooper Honors Neighborhood Business Investments in Design Excellence
 
Second Annual Awards Program Features 16 Diverse Projects
 
(DENVER) Mayor John Hickenlooper celebrated the growing number of Denver’s small business owners and developers who have made design excellence a priority in our community. Sixteen projects were selected for recognition in the second annual Mayor’s Design Awards.
 
“No matter how large or small the project, design matters,” Mayor Hickenlooper told the hundreds of guests attending the Tuesday, November 14, 2006, awards presentation in the Life to the Second Power Church located at East Colfax and Columbine. “We all benefit when business owners go the extra mile to invest time, money and creativity into their property, creating a culture of quality design and encouraging others to follow suit. These honorees are diverse examples of how attention to design details makes Denver a special place to live, work and play.”
 
The 2006 Mayor’s Design Awards showcase 16 different projects that embody various elements of design excellence. The honorees were selected from nearly 100 nominations.
 
“The people who create unique and well-designed projects are at the foundation of place-making in our community," said Denver Community Planning and Development Manager Peter Park, AICP. "A truly great city begins with an individual's spark of imagination. As individual ideas multiply and manifest in the form of interesting buildings and objects, a special place emerges. The Mayor's Design Awards program recognizes these contributions.”
