The City of Coralville Community Plan wins the Iowa APA Daniel Burnham Award for Comprehensive Planning. The award recognizes comprehensive plans that advance the science and art of planning, with focus on originality, innovation, citizen engagement, effectiveness, implementation, and progressing the role of planners. The award was presented to the City of Coralville and Houseal Lavigne Associates on October 23, 2014.
Using innovative outreach strategies and highly illustrative design, the Coralville Community Plan provides guidance for a growing community driven by an expanding technical, medical, and research-based community. The plan sets forth long-range recommendations for the maintenance and enhancement of existing neighborhoods and commercial areas, and advances strategies for the sustainable development and economic growth of the community.
The planning and public engagement process fostered stewardship for the plan by underscoring that participants’ voices had been heard and that their ideas had influenced the final decisions and plan recommendations. The result is a plan that directs local policy and day-to-day decision-making in an easy-to-use and understandable format to ensure Coralville can achieve its long-term goals and realize its desired potential.
