Envision Cambridge award

The Envision Cambridge citywide plan received the 2019 Comprehensive Planning Award from the American Planning Association – Massachusetts Chapter (APA-MA). The prestigious award honors a planning project that strives to create a thriving community and advances the APA-MA’s mission to enhance planning in Massachusetts through education, advocacy, outreach, and communication. The prestigious award was presented at the APA-MA Association of Planning Directors Annual Awards & Luncheon on Friday, December 13th.

Envision Cambridge articulates the core values identified by the Cambridge community: livability, diversity and equity, economic opportunity, sustainability and resilience, community health and wellbeing, and learning, and creates a vision for the future of the city. The plan recommends 55 strategies and 183 new, expanded or modified actions that span a range of focus areas and offer a roadmap to a sustainable, inclusive, and connected Cambridge. The three-year planning process encompassed extensive community outreach through traditional public meetings, print and digital engagement, workshops, surveys, events, walking tours, and street team activities including the Mobile Engagement Station.

The Community Development Department is currently working with departments throughout the City to implement the plan's strategies and actions.
