Creeks are big winners in this year’s Westside Urban Forum Design Competition, with design honors going to:

Ballona Creek Greenway Plan (category: Plans)

Piggyback Yard (category: Plans)

Milton Street Park (category: Open Space)

And Friends of the Los Angeles River gets a special nod, the John Chase Legacy Award, for their tireless efforts over the years. Congrats!

Restoration Design Group, the stream-restoration oriented design firm I work for, produced the Greenway Plan with ALTA Planning + Design and Ecotone Studios for the Santa Monica Bay Restoration Commission, and RDG also provided some restoration-oriented input into the Piggyback Yards concept, a collaboration by Mia Lehrer + Associates, Perkins + Will, Michael Maltzin Architects, and Chee Salette Architects for Friends of the L. A. River. SWA designed the Milton Street project for the Mountains Recreation & Conservation Authority.  Cheers all around!

Next step: moving these things from plans to actual projects. Can we add an award category for Political Will?

And thanks to Jim Lamm for emailing the results.
