2019 Vision Award Applications

The Local Vision Awards are given annually by the Sacramento Valley Section of the American Planning Association California Chapter (APACA), to organizations and individuals that have made outstanding contributions to creating better communities throughout the Sacramento Valley APA Section. The Sacramento Valley Section started the Local Vision Awards because we believe that planning a great community requires new and creative approaches that go beyond our traditional ideas of planning. The Sacramento Section's Vision Awards recognize that sometimes you have to color outside the lines to lead a community to plan for a better future.
