County Receives Achievement Awards

By Christina Haley O'Neal, posted Aug 8, 2017
New Hanover County has been recognized with six achievement awards from the National Association of Counties.

The awards program recognizes innovative county government programs that enhance services for residents, according to a news release from the county. One of the initiatives, the Planning and Land Use Department’s Development Activity webpage, was recognized by the National Association of Counties as a “100 Brilliant Ideas at Work” winner.
“The county is making advances through strategic, innovative programs to ensure our citizens are safe, healthy and secure,” County Manager Chris Coudriet said in the release. “We are a leader in the nation thanks to the guidance of our Commissioners and the dedication and initiative from our employees.” 

The six programs recognized include the Planning and Land Use Department’s Development Activity Page; Environmental Management’s HazWagon Program; New Hanover County’s partnership with LINC Inc. to create the jail diversion program; Parks and Gardens’ Ogden Skatepark; Soil and Water Conservation District’s Outdoor Environmental Learning Center and New Hanover County’s S.E.R.V.E. Training Program for employees.
