The American Planning Association (APA) for Urban Design has recognized the City of Chula Vista and the Port of San Diego for excellence in urban planning with a National Planning Achievement Award for the Chula Vista Bayfront Master Plan.
Ten Achievement Award recipients were selected by the awards jury as examples of good planning work. The Achievement recipients will be recognized collectively at the APA's National Planning Conference in Atlanta in April. APA's national awards program, the profession's highest honor, is a tradition established more than 50 years ago to recognize outstanding community plans, planning programs and initiatives, public education efforts, and individuals for their leadership on planning issues. These efforts help create communities of lasting value throughout the country – and the world.
