Although the rail trail did not win the award in its category—sustainable communities—trail representatives Joe Pampanin and Roger Jurczak were presented with a certificate (pictured).
The Borough of Emmaus received the council's Sustainable Community Award for the implementation of initiatives and policies that promote sustainable living, according to a news release.
Along with Emmaus borough and the Saucon Rail Trail, the other nominee in the sustainable communities category was the Lehigh and Northampton Transportation Authority (LANTA).
