Nominations for the 2017 Bates Award Due June 30

Nominations are now being accepted for the 2017 Bates Award.

The Delaware County Planning Commission is now accepting nominations for the 2017 William H. Bates Memorial Awards Program for Outstanding Land Development. This award, named for the late Chairman of the Planning Commission, honors excellence in site planning, development practices, and the innovative use of land resources.

We encourage you to nominate projects that you believe are worthy of recognition. Projects substantially completed during the past three years are eligible. 

All submissions will be reviewed by Planning Department staff and a committee of the Commission, with the final decision to be made by the full Commission. Awards will be presented at the September 2017 County Planning Commission meeting.

The Nomination Form must be submitted to the Planning Department no later than June 30, 2017 to be considered.

Past winners have included the Louella House renovation in Radnor Township, PPL Park Sports Stadium in Chester City, and the Riddle Hospital Health Care Center Four/Rothman Institute Medical Office in Middletown (pictured).
