The Valley Development Council, in collaboration with the Pioneer Valley Planning Commission, would like to invite you to participate in the 2009 Smart Growth Design & Reuse Competition.
Architects, designers and planners are invited to prepare concept plans for the redevelopment of two significant downtown/village center sites in the Pioneer Valley, a region of Western Massachusetts defined by the Connecticut River Valley. These redevelopment sites are located in Southampton and Palmer.
The goal for this international design competition is to create a local example of smart re-use, and to provide a model of how communities in the region can grow smarter. With the partnerships formed through this competition process, there will be significant momentum for turning the winning concept plan idea into reality.
Early registration is open until October 15, 2009. Late registration is due by January 15, 2010.
