The Riley Mayors’ Design Fellowship is accepting nominations for its inaugural class through August 15, 2018.
Nominees should be a current mayor with at least two years remaining in his or her term as of January 2019. Candidates should have a vision for a project in his or her city or town that will positively affect quality of life and/or economic development.
A nominating committee will select a diverse class of eight mayors based on potential for innovative and visionary leadership, cooperative spirit, and an ability to rally diverse interests around a common goal for the good of their community. Selected mayors will benefit from the confidential input of a team of experts in planning, design, development and/or financing and from the advice of fellow mayors.
Nominations will be accepted from city council and community members. Self-nominations from mayors will also be accepted.
