2012 Annual Awards Winner – Daniel Burnham Award for a Comprehensive Plan
The Char-West Plan is the determined effort of McKees Rocks, Neville, and Stowe to reverse years of economic and population decline and to transform challenges to assets. The plan gives insights in zoning, market analyses, and infrastructure and taps into the area’s strong institutions, potential for cooperation, and 16 miles of waterfront. The plan hits hard with a wake-up call of key trends. And it helps local officials and partner organizations zero in on 12 Essential Actions and Places to Grow in each municipality.
