Peter Holsten and Riverdale Mayor Deyon Dean accept the Burnham Award from Joseph Gregoire.
At MPC's 2010 Annual Luncheon on Monday, MPC and the luncheon's Presenting Sponsor PNC awarded the 2010 Burnham Award for Excellence in Planning to the Whistler Crossing community in south suburban Riverdale, Ill. What was once the struggling community known as Pacesetter is now Whistler Crossing, a sprawling, 500-unit housing and retail development, with well-designed open space, on-site resident services, and green development hallmarks. In fact, Whistler Crossing is the first project in Illinois to achieve LEED-ND (Neighborhood Development) designation.
For this reason and others, since Monday, the community has earned media attention from the following regional publications:
South Suburban News
The Times of Northwest Indiana
Congrats to Whistler Crossing for this well-deserved recognition!
