City earns prestigious award for Lewisville 2025 vision plan

Post Date:October 04, 2019 10:00 AM

The City of Lewisville has been selected as the Gold Level Recipient for the “Implementation Planning Achievement Award” by the American Planning Association – Texas Chapter for implementation of the Lewisville 2025 vision plan. 

The Texas Planning Awards Program recognizes outstanding efforts in planning achievement and planning leadership in Texas. Award entries are evaluated on program originality and innovation, engagement, implementation and effectiveness, quality, and promotion of planning. 

“These awards are a testament to a community’s commitment to good planning practices,” said Doug McDonald, AICP, president of APA-Texas. “It is an honor to recognize the efforts of elected and appointed officials, residents and businesses, and city planners who all played an important role with the development of these plans and projects.” 

Lewisville City Council unanimously adopted the Lewisville 2025 vision plan on July 14, 2014. The plan was developed during more than a year of public input and discussion that garnered hundreds of ideas and suggestions. That input was studied extensively by the Lewisville 2025 Committee, working with City staff and professional consultants. The resulting Lewisville 2025 plan sets a clear shared vision for the kind of community Lewisville wants to be when it turns 100 years old in 2025 and sets out dozens of action steps that can be taken to make that vision a reality. 

“The City of Lewisville is proud of the many successes achieved by our community as a result of the bold direction provided by the plan,” said Lewisville Planning Director Richard Luedke. “The implementation of the plan has been so successful because of how all sectors of our community came together with a common vision for the future of Lewisville.” 

Implementation of the Lewisville 2025 vision plan is an ongoing process with a single goal -- to make Lewisville a place that people choose to live, work and visit.
