At the end of every year, Charleston Main Streets honors the businesses, civic leaders, volunteers, and community members that are working everyday to strengthen the urban core of Charleston. The Urbanite Awards commemorates a year of hard work and dedication, while acknowledging those who are setting the ultimate example in our city. The 2017 awards were held on November 15 at Good News Mountaineer Garage on the West Side. Winners were honored per district in seven major categories: Rookie of the Year, The Game Changer (Business & Property Owner), The Urbaneer, Urban Artist, Urban Service, Urban Leadership, the Chairman's Brick, and The Urbanite of the Year. Congratulations to this year's honorees!
