2016 Vernon Deines Merit Award!

More success for our fantastic region: The American Planning Association, Small Town and Rural Planning Division, has named the West Central Mountains Economic Development Strategy as the recipient of its 2016 Vernon Deines Merit Award for an Outstanding Small Town Special Project Plan.

The Awards Committee “was incredibly impressed with this plan, and feel it embodies the best of small town and rural planning. The Committee felt the ability to get such significant community input, particularly in a region as vast as the West Central Mountains, was award worthy.”

This award just reinforces what we already know: We have an incredible plan, and a region full of amazing people! Thanks to everyone who has helped in this process. It is so exciting to see our vision come to fruition!
