JLA wins "PI Best Practice" Award
JLA’s public involvement effort on the Aloha-Reedville Study and Livable Community Plan was awarded the 2014 PI Best Practice Award for Best Planning Project by the International Association for Public Participation (IAP2).
The Aloha-Reedville Study and Livable Community Plan was a three-year effort to engage the entire Aloha-Reedville community to improve the quality of life and address the impact of future growth. From the beginning of the project, public feedback provided the backbone for what resulted as the final project study. Public involvement was essential in meeting the project objectives and in reaching a final result that was broadly supported by the community.
The PI Best Practice Awards recognize projects in Oregon and Washington that promote meaningful and innovative opportunities for community engagement. The IAP2 Core Values provide the basis for evaluating award nominations.
