Two TSW projects were recognized by the Georgia Planning Association at their Fall Conference last week on Jekyll Island: the Augusta Sustainable Development Implementation Program for Outstanding Planning Document and Alpharetta’s Envision Main Street for Outstanding Planning Process, Large Community.

The Augusta Sustainable Development Implementation Program is a detailed corridor plan that follows HUD’s Guidelines and Livability Principles. The project included an implementation program for a cluster of transit-oriented development neighborhoods along the corridor and revising current codes to facilitate higher density, mixed-use, and mixed-income development.

Envision Main Street was a 7-week visioning process for the redesign of Main Street into a true Main Street for Alpharetta that included two citizen design charrettes, a visual preference survey, and a project website where participants could leave comments about potential designs.

Garrett Hyer and Laura Richter accepted TSW’s awards (pictured below) and Garrett was also recognized for his student work last year at Georgia Tech: Outstanding Student Project, Northside Drive – the Grand Transit Boulevard.
