Yesterday we introduced the first 2 nominating categories in this yearâ€™s Swamplot Awards for Houston Real Estate. Nominations will remain open until midnight Sunday, December 9, for both awards: Favorite Houston Design ClichÃ© and Best Demolition.
Today, there are 2 more award categories to introduce. And theyâ€™re both new to the Swampies. The first of these we’re calling the Swamplot Award for Special Achievement in Traffic.
Traffic means popularity. Sure, we all like to complain about it when it gets in our way, but is traffic always such a bad thing? Is there anyone or anything that might stand to gain from it? And if a neighborhood, or a new development, or some sort of construction project were to deserve this sort of award, would it be for causing traffic, for lessening it, or for something else entirely? You tell us: What, in the Houston of 2012, deserves to be recognized for its unique relationship with traffic?
As usual, the Swampies are open to the sharp and clever formulations of readers. If you use your nomination to give this category a twist, sell your vision!
