Congratulations 2020 Planning Award Recipients
All of us at APA Los Angeles have been looking forward to acknowledging all 50 nominations submitted for the 2020 APA Los Angeles Planning Awards. Each nomination provides compelling answers as to why communities need planning more than ever before. As society roils under an ongoing pandemic, APA Los Angeles strives for a safer and healthier platform to honor this year’s extraordinary group of applicants and award recipients. The outstanding and renowned members of our Awards jury selected a group of recipients that are some of the boldest and the most daring yet. Altogether, they show why the unparalleled natural and social environment of Los Angeles have nurtured the country’s best urban planners. This year’s recipients are drawn from the vast geographic breadth of the county. We are thankful to see that more planners and planning work advancing the social and human development of underrepresented groups and marginalized communities. Programmers, coders, artists, educators, engineers, scientists, landscape architecture among many others are to thank for many of these great recipients. We invite you to visit apalosangeles.org/awards for a complete view of this year’s Awards recipients.
