What attendees are saying about the 2018 Conference!
Congratulations to the City of Lake Wales, Florida for winning the 2020 Planning Studies Award for a small community! Their project, Lake Wales Connected, brought to life a vision that was set by the Olmsted Brothers over a century ago. With the same goals in mind to create a living and beautiful community that inspires works of art, Lake Wales CRA partnered with other community developers to contract Dover, Kohl & Partners - Town Planning to develop Lake Wales Connected. This project rekindles the Olmsteds’ vision by creating a holistic downtown vision plan and a northwest neighborhood plan.
