The Michigan Chapters of the American Planning Association and the American Society of Landscape Architects have recognized Detroit Future City (DFC) Strategic Framework with important awards.
The awards are as follows:
“These two awards are not just a recognition for Detroit Future City, but a testament to the thousands of Detroiters who played a critical role in developing the Strategic Framework for our city’s future,” said Dan Kinkead, the Director of the Detroit Future City Implementation Office. “
“While these awards are an honor we all should celebrate, we recognize our true success will be measured through the implementation of the Strategic Framework. With critical policy, engagement, and pilot project initiatives already underway, we are making significant progress.”
Hamilton Anderson Associates, a Detroit-based architecture, landscape architecture, and urban planning firm instrumental in the development of the Strategic Framework, submitted the work to the professional organizations on behalf of all members of the Detroit Works Project Long Term Planning Team. Core team members included: Toni Griffin, Director, Stoss Landscape Urbanism, Happold Consulting, Mass Economics, Interface Studio, Center for Community Progress, Detroit Collaborative Design Center, and Michigan Community Resources.
The Detroit Future City Implementation Office drives projects, informs decisions and influences processes so that key initiatives implemented in the City of Detroit are in accordance with the Detroit Strategic Framework.
