Each year, the Department of Land Conservation and Development (DLCD) receives applications from cities around the state for the Achievement in Community Engagement Awards.
These awards recognize the work of communities, special districts, neighborhood groups, and other planning practitioners in making superlative efforts to engage their community in a land use planning exercise.
Outcomes of these projects can be as broad as county wide, or as discrete as a community garden.
The Citizen Involvement Advisory Committee evaluates each application in a manner that is mindful of local capacity, scale, and resources.
The community is invited to submit applications again this year to recognize commitment to public participation.
Award applications are due by March 27, 2019, at 5 p.m.
