City leaders put out a call last month for Sustainable Community Award nominees.
The honor is divided into categories for the Ruth Kees Environmental Award for a Sustainable Community and the Sustainable Community Award.
The honor named for Kees is the highest environmental award in Issaquah, and the Sustainable Community Award recognizes significant achievements and positive results of individuals.
Past Kees honorees include late City Council President Maureen McCarry, late Mountains to Sound Greenway pioneer Ted Thomsen and Issaquah Alps Trails Club President David Kappler, a former councilman.
Kees award recipients receive $500, funded through a donation from the Kees’ estate, his or her name is engraved on a commemorative plaque, and a tree is planted in the Kees Grove of Trees.
The nomination form is available on the municipal website, www.ci.issaquah.wa.us. Send forms to City of Issaquah, Office of Sustainability, P.O. Box 1307, 130 E. Sunset Way, Issaquah, WA 98027, or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org. The nomination deadline is Oct. 19.
