Clean Pittsburgh Commission seeks nominations for Bob Awards
On May 19, The Clean Pittsburgh Commission (CPC) will be honoring volunteers, community groups and neighborhoods at their annual Meet and Greet Mixer. This event recognizes individuals and community groups for their efforts and commitment to beautify the city neighborhoods.
The Clean Pittsburgh Commission is seeking nominations for this year’s Bob Awards, which will be presented by Councilman Corey O’Connor at the 2016 annual mixer.
The Bob Awards are a tribute to the late Mayor Bob O’Connor and his dedication to cleaning up the city. They were created to recognize local efforts to clean-up, prevent and eliminate litter in city neighborhoods.
Nominations and are being accepted for Volunteer of the Year and Neighborhood of the Year, and should highlight those who go above and beyond to keep our City beautiful. Anyone interested in submitting a nomination should visit http://pittsburghpa.gov/cpc/.
The Clean Pittsburgh Commission would also like to invite City of Pittsburgh residents to attend this year’s Annual Meet and Greet, which will be hosted at the 26th Street Café in the Strip District on May 19, starting at 6 p.m.
“The meet and greet is a great way for interested residents to learn about the mission and work of the Clean Pittsburgh Commission, and allows them the opportunity to meet Stewards representing communities throughout the city,” said Sarah Alessio Shea, chairwoman for the CPC. “We are always inviting anyone interested to join our efforts to beautify our City and put an end to illegal dumping and litter.”
Those interested in attending this year’s event, should contact Patty Chavez at 412-255-2872 or 412-670-5074.
The Clean Pittsburgh Commission was established in August 2005 through legislation introduced to City Council. The Commission’s mission is to work to improve the environmental quality of life of Pittsburgh residents through litter and illegal dumping prevention, clean-up and enforcement.
