October 17th, 2012 Comments Off on Carl Small Town Center, Architecture students receive APA MS awards

The Carl Small Town Center (CSTC) has received the Public Outreach Award from The Mississippi Chapter of the American Planning Association (APA MS). The center won the award for its MS Bypass Guidelines, which were published this year.

The Public Outreach award was one of only three awards given by the MS APA this year and is for an individual or program that uses information and education about the value of planning to create greater awareness among citizens and other segments of society.

Rachel McKinley and Zachary James, students in the School of Architecture, also received the Collaborative Project Award from APA MS. The award is for their work done in the CSTC’s CREATE Common Ground class last spring, which focused on revitalizing New Albany.

The Collaborative Project Award recognizes research, projects or other activities in which a student has worked collaboratively with practitioners/planners and/or faculty.

The awards will be accepted at the annual conference in Meridian next Friday, Oct. 26.

The theme of this year’s conference is “Creating Sense of Place: Collaborative, Sustainable & Innovative.”
