[MONTICELLO] – Nominations for homes, businesses and public buildings that enhance the appearance of their community in 2011 will have to wait one year. The Sullivan County Board of Realtors is postponing the annual recognition contest, due in part to the slow building market. The annual awards dinner will also be delayed for a year.
The contest has been recognizing newly constructed and renovated residences and businesses for the previous eight years. The judging criteria includes building exteriors, use of site, innovation, visual appeal, workmanship, date of project and location in Sullivan County.
“One effect of the national economic slowdown has been the need to postpone the Sullivan Showcase Awards. We want to give the building and construction industry another year to catch up,” said Board of Realtors President Linda McKean. “The present real estate market also makes it more difficult for volunteers to give time to run the contest. The good news is that we believe the economy is on the way to recovery and the contest will be able to return next year.”
Properties that are renovated or newly constructed this year will still be eligible to be nominated in 2012.
Categories include best new residential construction, best residential renovation, best spruce-up residential, best new commercial, best commercial renovation, best spruce-up commercial, unique or most interesting, and best municipal or public building project.
