City of Greater Sudbury's Brownfield Strategy Recognized at National Awards Ceremony

Released Thursday, Oct 11, 2012

Reclaiming Our Urban Places, Greater Sudbury's Brownfield Strategy and Community Improvement Plan has been recognized as a national leading example by the Canadian Urban Institute's (CUI) Brownie Awards. The strategy was named as a finalist in Category 1: Legislation, Policy and Program Development. Awards were presented late last week at the annual Canadian Brownfields conference, Gala Dinner in Niagara Falls.

'I'm proud of the dedicated and committed team behind this project,? said Bill Lautenbach, City of Greater Sudbury General Manager of Growth and Development. 'To have this strategy recognized at a National Level and judged by peer experts in the industry, shows our ideas are among the best in the country.?

The CUI Brownie Awards, now in its 12th year, recognized winners in seven categories from across Canada for their leadership, innovation and commitment to building sustainable communities. The Brownie Awards jury is made up of representatives from ten professional and industry associations from across Canada.

The goal of the City of Greater Sudbury's Brownfield Strategy and Community Improvement Plan is to breathe new life into already-used and now vacant commercial properties, known as brownfields.
