We're pleased most of all that our outreach efforts led to such a great deal of public input, in turn making Legacy 2030 best reflect the vision of our community. That being said, we're also very excited by recognition from our colleagues in the planning profession. This fall, the North Carolina Chapter of the American Planning Association awarded our department their award for Innovations in Planning Services, Education, and Public Involvement. And today, the American Planning Association announced that we will receive their National Planning Achievement Award in Public Outreach! Thanks so much!
