Each year, the Oregon Chapter of the American Planning Association honors outstanding efforts in planning and planning leadership. We have been recognizing talented planners and their work across Oregon for over 30 years.

Award presentations will be made at the OAPA/ISOCARP Joint Planning Conference in Portland, October 24-27, 2017. Award recipients will be invited to exhibit their projects, plans or programs at the conference and will be recognized on the OAPA website and in conference materials. At the conference ceremony and luncheon, the winners will receive a personalized award and certificate and they will be invited onstage to celebrate their achievement and receive congratulations from conference attendees.
