Boston Complete Streets wins APA National Planning Award

Utile is honored to receive the American Planning Association’s 2015 National Planning Excellence Award for a Communications Initiative, for its collaboration with the Boston Transportation Department and Toole Design Group on the Boston Complete Streets Design Guidelines. This 270-page illustrated manual communicates Boston’s Complete Streets policies and technical content, and graphically depicts design interventions in an easy-to-understand format.

“This award validates our efforts to create a public face for Boston’s efforts to improve the quality of its urban streets,” said Utile’s Siqi Zhu, who served as Project Designer. “The impact of the Guidelines can only grow as it reaches more people.”

This APA Planning Excellence Award honors efforts to “tell the planning story” and increase awareness and understanding about the planning profession.
