The Planning Commission is proud to announce our 36th annual celebration of excellence in planning and design in Hillsborough County to be hosted by Brendan McLaughlin on Thursday, October 25, 2018 at T Pepin’s Hospitality Centre! Save the date for this awards program that is a well-respected tradition honoring projects contributing to a better quality of life in our community and serving as models to learn from and emulate. With the emphasis on the importance of great planning in our own region, our awards program is held in October to align with the many national festivities during the American Planning Association‘s National Community Planning Month and celebration of Great Places in America.
Entries for projects in ten categories completed within the last five years, on or after January 1, 2013, are now being accepted. See our CALL for ENTRIES for details on Criteria, Categories, and Submission. All entries will be evaluated by an independent jury composed of prominent professionals in the fields of planning, urban design, development, architecture, or landscape architecture. Jury members live and work outside of Hillsborough County and are not affiliated in any way with the Planning Commission.
Complete submission packages will be accepted only in digital format no later than Tuesday, August 28, 2018 at 5 p.m. with $195 entry fee.
