City of Delray Beach Receives John Nolen Award

Click title for link to the formal announcement. You'll get the idea from this:
The Florida Chapter of the Congress for the New Urbanism (CNU) has selected the City of Delray Beach as this year’s recipient for the prestigious John Nolen Award. This award acknowledges the City’s outstanding achievements in urban growth and development that have transformed our municipality into a desirable community to live, work and play while maintaining its rich history, cultural diversity and unique small town charm.  Mayor Cary Glickstein accepted the coveted medal at the CNU 2014 Florida Summit Awards Presentation on February 6th.
A panel jury consisting of past award recipients review candidates who meet the criteria to receive this distinguished honor.  Five benchmarks are considered during the selection process:  innovation, transferability, quality, implementation and comprehensiveness.  This year’s award recipient proved to be exceptional – it is the first time that a town has ever been recognized for its contributions to urbanism.
