Bryan planning department recognized by state association

The city of Bryan's Planning and Development Services Department was recently recognized by the Texas Chapter of the American Planning Association with an award that recognizes planning departments that increase community awareness of the importance of planning, aid in economic development and assist with the image of the community.

To be considered for the award, planning departments must commit to supporting the educational development of its professional planning staff and appointed planning officials. The award is named for Richard Lillie, who helped plan Austin's growth from 1965 to 1984.

It is the fourth year in a row the city of Bryan's planning department has received the award.

Bryan planners accepted the award during the APA Texas Chapter's state conference in Waco in early November. The Bryan City Council presented the award to city planners on Nov. 12.
