GRADD Receives Innovation Award

GRADD NADO 300OWENSBORO, Ky. (9/26/13) – The Green River Area Development District (GRADD) received a 2013 Innovation Award from the National Association of Development Organizations (NADO) for its GIS infrastructure map book project.

In January, GRADD's Geographic Information Systems (GIS) team began producing high-resolution infrastructure map books for water/wastewater systems within its seven-county region. The books overlay detailed infrastructure features (color-coded water and sewer lines, treatment facilities, water tanks, etc.) above topographical background imagery and roadway layers.

These books are designed to be used as both a comprehensive reference for managers in the office and as a handy manual for employees in the field. To date, GRADD has completed map books for Calhoun Water Works, East Daviess County Water Association, Hawesville Water Works, Henderson County Water District, Ohio County Water District, Sturgis Water Works, Union County Water District, and Whitesville Water Works.

NADO is a Washington, DC-based association that promotes programs and policies that strengthen local governments, communities, and economies through regional cooperation, program delivery, and comprehensive strategies. The association’s Innovation Awards program recognizes regional development organizations and partnering organizations for improving the economic and community competitiveness of our nation’s regions and local communities. Award winners were showcased during NADO’s 2013 Annual Training Conference, held August 24-27 in San Francisco, California.

“For nearly 30 years, NADO’s Innovation Award has provided regional development organizations the opportunity to be recognized for their hard work and dedication to promoting economic development in rural and small metropolitan communities across the country. Building on the unique strengths and challenges of each region and community, award recipients continue to promote sustainable economic growth not only now, but for many years to come. And I am pleased to announce that this year over 100 regional development organizations were selected to receive NADO’s 2013 Innovation Award,” said NADO President John Leonard, Executive Director of the Southern Georgia Regional Commission in Valdosta, Georgia.
