The Delaware County Planning Commission is now accepting nominations for the 2013 William H. Bates Award for Outstanding Land Development. These awards, named for the late Chairman of the Delaware County Planning Commission, honor excellence in site planning, development practices, and innovative use of land resources.
We encourage municipal officials, developers, engineers, and the public at large to submit the suggested names of projects that are believed to be worthy of recognition prior to October 14, 2013 to:
Dennis De Rosa
Delaware County Planning Department
201 W. Front Street
Media, PA 19063
Upon receipt, we will forward an official nomination form and guidelines for the process. Projects substantially completed during the past three years are eligible. Planning Department staff and a committee of the Planning Commission will review all submissions with the final decision to be made by the full Planning Commission at one of its monthly public meetings in the fall.
