The annual Montgomery Awards Program recognizes the excellence in planning, design, and advocacy in Montgomery County. It 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. Last year, MCPC partnered with the Montgomery County Conservation District to add an Environmental Stewardship Award as part of the awards program. Eligibility criteria, nomination requirements, and entry forms are available at www.montcopa.org/MontgomeryAwards.
