I learned today, the American Planning Association selected our partner in the Albany 2030 Comprehensive Plan Development, WRT, to receive their first ever National Planning Excellence Award for a Planning Firm award. They were selected for their innovative and collaborative approach to planning and the bodies of distinguished work they have produced over the years influencing the professional practice of planning. We have learned a lot working with WRT staff over the past years and look forward to teaming with them on future projects, including the HUD Sustainable Communities Grant project recently announced in New Rivers Valley, VA. WRT will receive the award at APA’s annual conference, this year taking place in April in Boston. Click here to see the full description.
