The Lower Savannah Council of Governments (LSCOG) in Aiken has been awarded a 2013 Excellence in Regional Transportation Award from the National Association of Development Organizations (NADO) for their Lower Savannah Regional Bicycle & Pedestrian Plan and Resuscitation of Transit (and Senior) Services in Allendale plan.


NADO is a Washington, D.C.-based association that promotes programs and policies to strengthen local governments, communities and economies through regional cooperation, program delivery and comprehensive strategies.


The Excellence in Regional Transportation Awards showcase organizations for noteworthy projects and practices in rural and small metropolitan transportation planning, program delivery, and special initiatives.


The Lower Savannah Regional Bicycle & Pedestrian Plan provides a strong foundation for the development of bicycle and pedestrian facilities in South Carolina’s Lower Savannah regional transportation network.


The Resuscitation of Transit (and Senior) Services in Allendale plan effectively revived the Allendale Office of Aging during a financial crisis resulting in the improved efficiency, service, and safety of transit services.
