Project Planning Award
American Planning Association, Texas Chapter
The Division Street Master Plan was awarded the Project Planning Award earlier this month from the Texas Chapter of the American Planning Association.
Freese and Nichols worked with the North Central Texas Council of Governments and the City of Arlington to develop a plan to transform a one-mile corridor of Division Street, a prominent but run-down thoroughfare in central Arlington. Instead of relying on capital improvement projects, the "Discover Division" plan works from the inside out, through existing market-based opportunities. The material developed by the team — including evaluation of redevelopment opportunities and a cohesive, step-by-step plan for implementation — reflects a real-world approach to successful municipal planning in today’s environment.
