 Announcing the Susan M. Burgess Sustainability Awards 

The N.C. League of Municipalities is proud to announce the establishment of the Susan M. Burgess Sustainability Awards -- an addition to the very successful NCLM Green Challenge --  to recognize cities and towns for their efforts to develop and implement measures to lessen the environmental impact of municipal operations and to promote and encourage sustainability practices throughout their communities.

The awards honor the accomplishments and spirit of the late Susan M. Burgess, a past president of the League and Charlotte city council member. She was a dedicated and enthusiastic environmentalist. At her initiative, the League established its Green Challenge program to recognize N.C. cities and towns for their efforts to save energy, natural resources and money. Susan Burgess died in 2010 of cancer.
