2011 Minneapolis Garden Awards
2010 Minneapolis City Award
Minneapolis Downtown Improvement District Award
On January 12, the Downtown Improvement District (DID) presented awards for outstanding greening sites in downtown Minneapolis. The presentation of LGA's award was made by David Wilson of Accenture, who is the chair of DID's Greening Committee. The committee instituted an annual Greening Recognition and Awards program. Its jury walked all over downtown and selected the best examples of greening, ranging in scale from small pots at building entrances to large park areas.
The award was made to LGA for "2010 Greening Award for Community Involvement for Loring Greenway Beautification."
