DCPD Senior Planner Ryan Judge recognized as an outstanding young planner by the Pennsylvania Chapter of the American Planning Association.

On October 24, 2017 the Pennsylvania Chapter of the American Planning Association (PA Chapter of APA) held its Annual Awards Luncheon in State College, PA where over 300 attendees celebrated the esteemed award winners of this year’s highly competitive program.

Receiving the Planning Leadership Award in the category of Emerging Planner was Ryan T. Judge, Senior Planner with the Delaware County Planning Department. This award recognizes an individual who has been active in planning for less than 10 years and who has demonstrated efforts to advance and innovate planning.

In his short time as a professional planner, Ryan has consistently shown strong leadership skills as well as initiative and innovation in his work. He is a highly-motivated individual worker, and also excels when working in a team environment. At Delaware County Planning, Ryan led development of the Planner’s Portfolio Series, short, easy-to-read graphic guides for various planning topics. He has also had extensive involvement in the county comprehensive plan and the Downtown Awakening program in which the planning department creates long-range vision plans for the county’s downtowns and Main Streets.

Please join us in congratulating Ryan for his hard work and dedication to the future of Delaware County!
