2014 Innovation in Governance Award Program
The New Jersey League of Municipalities continues to recognize Innovation in Governance through their annual awards program. The awards are presented as part of the Mayor Lunch and Executive Briefing Wednesday November 19 during the League of Municipalities Annual Conference in Atlantic City.
This award program was established to highlight exemplary local government programs that provide innovative and practical approaches to solving municipal problems and concerns. At the same time, we share these innovative approaches with municipal leaders throughout the state at the Annual New Jersey League of Municipalities Conference, and through the National League of Cities “Best Practices” database.
The 2014 judges include: League Past Presidents Paul Matacera and Plainsboro Mayor Peter Cantu; and League Executive Director Bill Dressel.
The program was recently broadened to recognize any type of innovation undertaken by municipalities in the past two years. And the participants responded with a range of submissions that underscore the variety of challenges municipalities solve.
The 2014 winners are:
- Highland Park – Park Partners Community Grant
- Princeton – The Princeton Consolidation
