Regional + Urban Design

The Regional + Urban Design Awards category is for regional and urban design projects, planning programs, civic improvements, environmental programs, and redevelopment projects. Since many urban design projects are never “completed” in the traditional sense, “incomplete” projects or ongoing programs may be recognized if a significant portion has been completed, implemented, or adopted by a local jurisdiction. The projects may be large or small in scope and do not need to be built, but they must be economically and socially realistic. The awards seek to identify projects and programs that involve public participation and contribute to the quality of the urban environment. The project completion date cannot be more that five years old.
