Calling all visionaries: MPC seeks nominations for 2010 Burnham Award for Excellence in Planning

Get out your blueprints and sharpen those PowerPoints, because it’s once again time to submit nominations for MPC’s Burnham Award for Excellence in Planning, which, since 1988, has encouraged sensible growth by honoring innovative and visionary planning efforts in the Chicago metropolitan region.

Nominations for the 2010 Burnham Award are due to MPC by 4 p.m. on Thursday, April 8, 2010. The Burnham Award Selection Committee, chaired by Joseph A. Gregoire, Regional President – Illinois Banking, PNC Bank, will evaluate the nominations and select the winner, who will be announced at MPC’s 2010 Annual Luncheon. (PNC Bank is the presenting sponsor for MPC’s Annual Luncheon and is underwriting the Burnham Award for the fifth straight year. Thanks, PNC Bank!)

Learn more about the Burnham Award, including submission guidelines and a complete list of past winners. And please invite your friends and colleagues to join us in celebrating the region’s best planning by nominating plans they think deserve such recognition.
