Banner Community Program
Banner Communities are recognized due to their outstanding commitment to professional development, prudent fiscal management, transparency, accountability and proactive communications to engage community stakeholders.
The Allegheny League of Municipalities, in conjunction with Allegheny County and program sponsor HRG Engineering, is pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for the 2022 Banner Community Program. Honored municipalities and authorities distinguish themselves as model communities through their commitment to sustainable practices including professional development, intergovernmental cooperation, sound fiscal management and proactive communications to engage community stakeholders. Last year’s program was a huge success and resulted in a record 76 communities earning the Banner Community designation.
A special recognition luncheon at the Annual Educational Conference was joined by County Executive Rich Fitzgerald to recognize program participants. In addition, through a partnership with HRG Engineering and Allegheny County, Banner Community designees were eligible for registration scholarships to the Educational Conference held in June 2021.
The applications below reflect efforts undertaken by a municipal government during the 2021 calendar year. Applications may be submitted at any time from now until the deadline of January 21, 2022. We appreciate your support of our association and encourage your community to seek the Banner Community Designation this year. Please feel free to contact ALOM with any questions you may have regarding the application procedure.
