Award for Dr Jeff Loux, Adjunct Prof, Env Design: Landscape Architecture and Director of Land Use and Natural Resources; UNEX

UC Davis Extension’s Land Use and Natural Resources program, directed for many years by Dr. Jeff Loux and now co-directed by Julia Johnston, recently won the 2011 American Planning Association, California Chapter, Distinguished Leadership Award at both the State and regional levels for sustained and significant contributions to the planning profession. Both the statewide award and the regional award recognize the program’s commitment to excellence in urban, community, regional and environmental planning education for professionals. The award also acknowledges the important role that the program plays in the overall economic and social health of the region. Great credit is due to the many dedicated staff of the program over the years and past leaders who helped shape the program including Mike McCoy and Elizabeth Grassi of UC Davis’ Urban Land Use and Transportation Center. We will be accepting the award at the Cal APA annual conference in Santa Barbara in September.
