The Yerba Buena Community Benefit District seeks nominations for its second annual Yerba Buena Community Excellence Awards. The award is given to people and organizations that make Yerba Buena better. You define what that means. Be creative! There are no specific categories except for the Neighborhood Champion award. Last year’s recipients included the Yerba Buena Gardens Festival for place-making, CMG Landscape Architecture for beautification ideas, two community members for community service, and Supervisor Jane Kim received our Neighborhood Champion award. Recipients are selected by YBCBD’s volunteer committees and its Board of Directors comprised of Yerba Buena residents, businesses, and nonprofit organizations.
