Over the past year, Bay City, Michigan has made increased efforts to revitalize its downtown neighborhoods. In order to reward those who have made the biggest impact, the 2010 Michigan Downtown Conference awards luncheon recognized the successful projects and people who helped make the area a safer place to live, work and play.

The awards were given by state agencies and organizations whose mission is to improve Michigan's downtown and commercial districts. Recipients of awards given by the Michigan Downtown Conference Planning Committee include those who worked on small and large-scale green projects, as well as those who assisted with facade rehabilitation.

"Every year, the Michigan Downtown Conference planning partners recognize those projects, communities and individuals who have proved themselves as true leaders in our state," said Joe Borgstrom of the Michigan State Housing Development Authority. "This year's award winners are no exception."

The Michigan Main Street Center also awarded architects and urban planners for categories such as best economic restructuring.

The annual conference is dedicated to bringing the best ideas, resources and educational sessions together in order to create an environment that celebrates the growth of Michigan's downtowns and discuss the challenges. The theme of the 2010 conference is "Michigan's Downtowns: Yes, We're Open!"
