UDP News: Winter 2012
On Friday, October 21, 2011, the 2011 American Planning Association (APA)/Planning Association of Washington (PAW) Awards were announced and presented at the Joint Washington/Oregon APA State Planning Conference by the Washington and Oregon Chapters of the American Association in Portland, Oregon. UDP affiliate faculty member Alon Bassok and seven students from his URBDP 508 Transportation and Land Use studio course were presented with an award for their project titled: City of Seattle Bicycle Planning Best Practices and Count Methodology.
Selected juror comments on the APA Washington Chapter website include crediting the award winning UDP student project for contributing “best practices and very innovative techniques that can be used by other cities who want to replicate similar bicycle planning counts & methodology as part of projects."
