The Committee on Urban Environment (CUE) is pleased to announce that it is now accepting nominations for its 32nd CUE Awards. The annual awards recognize excellence in urban, architectural, or environmental design, historic preservation, streetscape beautification, parks and open spaces, special events, neighborhood improvement, public art, and personal (or lifetime) achievement. The CUE will host an awards ceremony in early 2004 to announce the winning projects that best capture the urban spirit and enrich the City's landscape.
NRP-initiated projects have fared well over the years with multiple winners recognized annually. Winning projects have included: East Village, a 179-unit mixed-income housing and retail development located in the Elliot Park neighborhood; the Humboldt Greenway Redevelopment, a project that has brought more than 200 new units of housing and vast green space to Humboldt Avenue North from 47th to 53rd avenues North; and Agape Dos, an adult foster-care home for Latinos living with AIDS.
In order to be eligible for a CUE Award, projects and/or events must be located within the City of Minneapolis and have been completed within the past five years. To facilitate an adequate and equitable evaluation of each nomination, the CUE requests submission of photographs and slides, as well as a brief narrative and copies of press coverage.
To apply, please submit photos, slides and a brief project narrative to the CUE Awards Program, 350 South Fifth Street-Room 210, Minneapolis, MN 55415-1385 by November 17, 2003.
