The Como/Sunset Heights Neighborhood Empowerment Zone Strategic Plan received the 2018 Planning Project Award from the American Planning Association (APA)-Texas Chapter.

The plan proposes a comprehensive, holistic approach that builds on existing assets and strengths in the Como neighborhood and outlines a vision, goals, plan framework and implementation strategies to achieve the aspirations of residents and stakeholders. The plan promotes community-led revitalization built on strong partnerships with the City of Fort Worth and other public and private organizations.

The APA Texas Planning Awards Program recognizes outstanding efforts in planning achievements and planning leadership. The awards represent the state’s highest planning honors. The Awards Selection Committee evaluated nominees based on originality and innovation, engagement, implementation and effectiveness, quality, and promotion of planning.

Award winners will be recognized at the APA-Texas Chapter annual conference Oct. 19 in Galveston.
