The Montgomery Awards Program recognizes the best in planning, design, and advocacy in Montgomery County. This annual program promotes awareness of outstanding design and innovative planning in our communities by awarding successful land developments, revitalization efforts, open space enhancements, environmental sustainability, and transportation improvements. It also recognizes citizens and organizations that have made significant and sustained contributions to planning in Montgomery County through a Planning Advocate Award. Since 1967, the program has awarded 190 projects, acknowledging the outstanding efforts and commitment of communities, organizations, and professionals in achieving excellence. Anyone may submit nominations. The nomination period extends from March 1 through the last Friday in April. Contact Holly Mager at 610-278-3972 for information on the program.
