Each year, the CCAPA Awards Committee seeks nominations from our planning community to showcase outstanding projects and efforts. Whether it is a hard-working citizen, innovative process or a solution to a vexing problem, this provides an opportunity to recognize and share great work.
Past award categories include Education, Implementation, Citizen Planner, Community of the Year and Innovation. The six-person Awards Committee evaluates and selects awardees based on established criteria.
In addition, the CCAPA’s Executive Board is responsible for two Discretionary Awards:
