This year’s competition featured 41 nominees, which yielded 17 winners in the categories of New Development, Redevelopment, Special Development, Public Planning and Policy, and Raising Public Awareness.
TEXRail was recognized in the category of Special Development, which honors projects that exemplify outstanding promotion of specific elements of the Principles of Development Excellence. The judging committee included some of the nation’s top urban planning experts.
Trinity Metro President & CEO Bob Baulsir accepted the award. “Receiving a CLIDE Award for TEXRail is a tremendous honor for us,” he said. “We are grateful for the recognition and appreciate everyone’s efforts in bringing our commuter rail project to fruition.”
