November, 2018 – The Planning Commission is proud to announce the winners of our 36th Annual Planning & Design Awards presented by TECO with our marketing partner, the Tampa Bay Times. This celebration of excellence in planning and design in Hillsborough County was held on October 25 at TPepin’s Hospitality Centre. Our annual awards program aligns with the many national festivities held during the American Planning Association’s National Planning Month and celebration of Great Places in America. Award winners were selected by a panel of distinguished judges from outside of Hillsborough County. Brendan McLaughlin, Master of Ceremonies, presented eight Awards of Merit, four Awards of Excellence, and three Awards of Outstanding Contribution to the Community, including the Jan Abell Award for Historic Preservation.
