Each year, the Center for Collaborative Planning (CCP) presents the Award for Building Community (ABC) to outstanding community builders who have helped to create a stronger region by bringing the greatest resources -human resources- together.

Those community members are selected based on the following criteria:


  • Individual
    - a community member that has helped build your community.


  • Association
    - a formal or informal group such as a neighborhood association, collaborative, or club that has helped build community.


  • Institution
    - a business, organization, or government entity that has helped by providing resources or supporting community building efforts (not necessarily providing direct services).
