The Region Five Development Commission in Staples received a 2014 Excellence in Regional Transportation Award from the National Association of Development Organizations (NADO) for its Resilient Region Policies - Sustainable Community Comprehensive Plan Language and Ordinances.

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.
