Alliance For Regional Stewardship Announces 2005 Award Recipients

Alliance for Regional Stewardship

The Alliance for Regional Stewardship (ARS) today announced recipients of the 2005 Regional Stewardship Award. Representatives of Greater San Diego's Partnership for the New Economy, the Northeast Wisconsin Coalition on the Regional Economy (NEW CORE), and Northern Kentucky's Vision 2015 each were presented with a $15,000 stipend today at the ARS National Forum in Washington D.C.
The annual awards recognize the innovative work of regional alliances and organizations that have demonstrated progress in all four elements of ARS' Principles for Regional Stewardship (collaborative governance, innovative economy, livable communities, and social inclusion) and that have achieved tangible results, increased regional capacity, and shown the potential for sustainability.
A key goal of the program is to educate other regions of best practices. The cash award is intended to be used to continue the work in the region and support the costs the award recipients will incur while sharing their stories with peers in other regions. The Morgan Family Foundation has sponsored the awards for the past two years.
"These award recipients are being recognized for their outstanding efforts in using a collaborative, cross-jurisdictional approach to addressing key regional issues," said John Parr, ARS executive director. "We commend these regional stewards for their dedication, hard work, and commitment to the ARS guiding principles."
The Alliance for Regional Stewardship (ARS) is a Colorado-based organization that works to find innovative regional solutions to vexing community problems, such as transportation, land use, environmental resources, housing, public safety, neighborhood revitalization, and economic development. Representing more than 100 metropolitan and rural regions throughout the world, its members make up a network of leaders who recognize collaborative problem-solving as the best method of successfully addressing the challenges facing today's regions. These "regional stewards" include elected and appointed government officials, business owners and executives, higher education representatives, nonprofit and community organizations, foundations, and activists who have common interests and goals.
