I would like to invite you to be my guest for a night of celebration!

This year’s Common Ground Awards Celebration is recognizing 20 outstanding projects within our community. This event embodies the mission of MPA, to create a prosperous community by promoting collaboration. Collaboration is the cornerstone of Metropolitan Pima Alliance’s mission and the gold standard by which the Common Ground Award applicants are judged. Working together to achieve growth, prosperity and the betterment of our community are characteristics shared by all projects honored at this year’s ceremony – winners and finalists alike.

In the 22 years since the organization’s inception, collaboration has been demonstrated throughout the community and celebrated over the past 15 years with the Common Ground Awards. The Common Ground Awards honor projects, both big and small, providing significant benefit to not only those in the land-use industry, but the community as a whole. Many of the projects that have been awarded may not have been glamorous, but they are significant because they are reflective of hours worked, the unlikely partnerships formed and the many obstacles and setbacks that needed to be overcome for Southern Arizona to succeed.

It is incredible to learn about all the amazing projects taking place in Southern Arizona, and I am excited to invite you to join me on November 1st in celebration of this year’s Finalists.

Allyson Solomon

Executive Director,
Metropolitan Pima Alliance
