Winning isn’t everything, but we can often learn a lot from plans, programs, and projects that have been deemed worthy of an award. In this session, speakers representing four winners of SCD’s 2015 Awards for Excellence in Sustainability will demonstrate how communities can function more sustainably. Our speakers will showcase four very different projects. Neil Angus will discuss the Devens Sustainable Housing Pilot Project, a completed project that won the Sustainable Development Project Award. Rhonda Fast will discuss the Crystal Springs Creek Habitat Restoration Projects, which won the Sustainable Parks, Recreation and Open Space Project award. Justin Golbabai will give an overview of the City of Austin Neighborhood Partnering Program, the Leadership in Sustainability winner. John Zeanah will discuss the Mid-South Regional Greenprint and Sustainability Plan, the winner of the Sustainable Law, Policy or Plan award. From completed projects to examples of community partnerships and plans, these case studies will give you some ideas of innovative thinking about sustainability at all scales and in very different locations.
