Immokale Zocalo wins national award!

Awards and honors continue to flow to the Immokalee Zocalo – or Main Street Plaza! 

News came as a Christmas gift of a national award for the community plaza. The National Community Development Association (NCDA) has named the Immokalee Zocalo as the recipient of its 2015 Audrey Nelson Community Development Award. 

Named for the first deputy executive secretary of the NCDA in 1987, the award recognizes "exemplary uses of the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program and the partnerships between local governments and non-profit organizations to assist low- and moderate-income persons. 

As an award recipient the Immokalee CRA and its design/construction team will be invited to Washington, DC, in January to present an overview of the project during the NCDA Winter Conference. 

"This is a great honor," said Immokalee CRA Executive Director Bradley Mucklel. "It's a fantastic recognition for the community of Immokalee as well as for our design team of architect David Corban, landscape architect Ellin Goetz and our construction team at Surety Construction." 

The Zocalo was honored in September by the Collier Building Industry Association by winning one of its coveted Sand Dollar Awards.
