As voting for the 2012 election season ends Tuesday, residents can cast their ballots for a Columbia County development contest through Nov. 23.
Voters are asked to choose from eight non-residential buildings that were built in Columbia County from 2011-2012.
Developments included in the contest are Shops at Riverwood, Shops at Evans Exchange, Verizon at the Gateway shopping center, Fodder Creek offices in Marshall Square, Advanced Auto Parts on Washington Road, Tax Slayer in Marshall Square, Steak `n Shake and the Islamic Community Center off Old Evans Road.
Voting for the county’s third annual Community Pride Design Awards is online at www.columbiacountyga.gov under the Quick Links section.
The winner will be selected on character, overall design and quality of the development.
Contest finalists were announced at Thursday’s Columbia County Planning Commission meeting.
“It gives the builders and the developers something to strive for,” Chairwoman Jean Garniewicz said at the meeting.
