The Ontario Professional Planners Institute (OPPI) has announced that the City of London has won four Excellence in Planning Awards for the City’s ground-breaking ReThink London project.
ReThink London was the largest community engagement project in London’s history, engaging over 50,000 residents in a conversation about London’s future. The resulting plan – The London Plan – articulates the City’s new vision and municipal policies based on the unprecedented engagement of City residents.
“We warmly congratulate John Fleming, the planning department and all City staff who worked so hard on ReThink London,” said Liz Nield, CEO of Lura Consulting. “Lura was privileged to work with the City throughout the ReThink process and we were so impressed by the City’s commitment to build its new plan through listening to and reflecting community feedback in The London Plan.”
“We are thrilled that OPPI has recognized the City of London with no less than 4 Excellence in Planning Awards, including two for the ReThink process and two for the resulting London Plan. Very well deserved,” Nield said.
