Santa Clara Agrihood Wins APA Award
The Silicon Valley Voice reports on the Santa Clara Agrihood’s recent APA Northern Section Award win: “Carmela Campbell, Awards Program Director for APA, explained that the award sought to recognize projects that showed special innovation and originality in environmental aspects of planning. The organization especially wanted to recognize projects that demonstrated how residential planning can intersect with other land uses — something that the Agrihood achieved with its agricultural space designed to serve the community. Another big component was the high degree of community engagement. There were a series of community meetings by both the project team and City to inform the public, and the project’s design was in turn informed by community feedback.”
