Improvement district chairman wins environmental award



NORTH FULTON, Ga. — Kerry Armstrong, chairman of the North Fulton Community Improvement District, was recognized with the Georgia Department of Transportation Leadership Award from the Clean Air Campaign.

The 2013 PACE Awards were presented in 12 categories to employers, schools, property managers and individuals who are devoted to improving mobility and air quality in the region.

The GDOT Leadership Award is presented to an individual who has shown exemplary commitment to improving air quality and reducing traffic congestion.

This award specifically recognizes the role of community leaders, corporate executives and others who have used their influence to change attitudes, develop solutions and move Georgia toward a future with less traffic and cleaner air.

“Kerry’s dedication to creating a more walkable North Fulton has made measurable differences in our community,” said Ann Hanlon, chief operating officer of the North Fulton Community Improvement District. “The ability for the Atlanta region to continue to grow in population while decreasing its air pollution is directly impacted by the commitment of regional leaders like Kerry.”

The theme for the 2013 PACE Awards program explored the many ways that workplaces and individuals are banding together for sustainable transportation through their involvement in Georgia Commute Options, a suite of programs that combine all of metro Atlanta’s alternate commute resources including commuter incentive programs, ride-matching, employer services, telework consulting and more.

Now in its 13th year, the PACE Awards were presented by the Clean Air Campaign in partnership with the region’s transportation management associations and the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT).

The ceremony was held at the Georgia-Pacific Auditorium in downtown Atlanta.
