UEP Prof. Rusty Russell, DCR's Catherine Garnett, Jessie Partridge, Christina Kim, Ronak Dave, and Rui (Renee) Guo.
In what has become something of a tradition at UEP, one of the groups from UEP's Field Projects course has received a prestigious award from APA-MA, the Massachusetts chapter of the American Planning Association.
The 2011 Dorchester Greenway team has been selected for the Student Planning Award, to be officially presented on December 16th. The team was made up of Ronak Dave, Rui (Renee) Guo, Christina Kim, and Jessie Partridge. Their project in Spring 2011 for the Department of Conservation and Recreation examined potential routes for a multi-use connector trail in Dorchester. Their report and presentation are both available on the UEP Field Projects website.
In 2010, the Watertown Community Path team was awarded a different award by APA-MA, the Outstanding Planning Award for Best Community-Wide Project. In previous years, other teams have received the APA-MA Student Planning Award, as well as several awards from AICP, the American Institute of Certified Planners.
Congratulations to the 2011 Dorchester Greenway team!
