Northeast Florida Regional Council's Quality of Life Award presented yesterday
St. Augustine Mayor Nancy Shaver has been awarded the Northeast Florida Regional Council's (NEFRC) Quality of Life Award for Excellence which recognizes individuals, organizations or projects that contribute to the livability and quality of life in Northeast Florida
In announcing this year’s award recipient, Brian Teeple, NEFRC Chief Executive Officer praised Mayor Shaver’s leadership that resulted in St. Augustine being a city that welcomed a vulnerability assessment and holds regular community conversations on the topic of sea-level rise. He also called attention to her energy and enthusiasm as Co-Chair of Resiliency Florida, a state-wide not-for-profit that helps communities plan and adapt for the future impacts of weather and sea level rise.
“This is a time for leadership, and Mayor Shaver is providing that,” Teeple said.
The NEFRC, one of ten regional planning councils in the state of Florida, provides a network of local governance, serving seven counties in District 4: Baker, Clay, Duval, Flagler, Putnam, Nassau and St. Johns, as well as their municipalities.
The award was presented by NEFRC's 1st Vice President, Catherine Robinson, Mayor of Bunnell at the organization's 15th Annual Elected Officials Luncheon and Regional Leadership Awards ceremony held yesterday, December 7, 2017.
