Montgomery County Planning Commission Seeks Nominations for 2017 Montgomery Awards

Masthead 50years Celebration call for entries

Norristown, PA (March 17, 2017) –The Montgomery County Planning Commission (MCPC) is looking for projects and people that represent the best in site design and planning advocacy in Montgomery County and invites the public to submit nominations for the 2017 Montgomery Awards Program by May 12, 2017.

This annual program, which will celebrate its 50th year in 2017, promotes awareness of outstanding building design and innovative site planning in communities within the county. It acknowledges the high quality of work and commitment of communities, organizations, and professionals in contributing to these excellent projects. MCPC is in search of land development projects, including residential, office, commercial, and institutional developments that exemplify good site design such as building placement, project context, parking and circulation, pedestrian amenities, landscaping, and sustainable design practices.

The county is also looking for nominations of an individual or organization that has made significant and sustained contributions to advancing or promoting planning in Montgomery County for consideration of a Planning Advocate Award.

MCPC is pleased to announce that it will partner with the Montgomery County Conservation District in 2017 to offer an Environmental Stewardship Award as part of the Montgomery Awards Program. This award will recognize a project, completed in the past three years, which exemplifies the practices of environmental stewardship and conservation for water and soil quality.

“This award program is a great opportunity to recognize the people and organizations that are dedicated to high quality design and building communities that enhance the future of Montgomery County,” said Jody L. Holton, AICP, Executive Director of the Montgomery County Planning Commission.

Information on the program, past award winners, eligibility and nomination requirements, and online entry forms are available at www.montcopa.org/MontgomeryAwards.

Winning projects are selected by a committee consisting of members from the Montgomery County Planning Commission Board and award recipients are honored at an awards presentation. The Environmental Stewardship Award will be selected by the Montgomery County Conservation District.
