Three REA projects have been recently recognized with 2018 AIM Community Placemaking Awards. The Aim Annual Awards program recognizes communities and individuals in municipal government for excellence and outstanding achievement. A nine-member panel of qualified judges selected this year’s winners from a competitive field of nominees from around the state.


City of Jasper, The Parklands in the 10,000 – 20,000 population category

City of Evansville, North Main Street Project, winner in the above 20,000 population category.

-Aim CEO Matt Greller

Town of Daleville, Town Hall Park & Splash Pad in the under 2,000 population category.

“Daleville’s accomplishment is so impressive. This is a large-scale project similar to those seen in bigger cities. I am really inspired by what Daleville and smaller communities across Indiana are able to do when dedicated municipal officials put their heads together…”
