APWA Environmental Project of the Year Award

Conesus Award

We are pleased to announce that the Conesus Streambank Remediation Project has won an APWA Environmental Project of the Year Award! This award was established to promote excellence in the management and administration of public works projects. CC Environment & Planning teamed with lead engineer, Barton & Loguidice, D.P.C to remediate and stabilize streambanks adjacent to Conesus Lake in Livingston County. The project was led by Livingston County Planning and the Towns of Livonia, Geneseo, and Conesus. We are pleased to have been a part of a diverse team with strong leadership and a project aimed at water quality improvement in Conesus Lake.

Featured Project: Stream Restoration

CC Environment & Planning worked with Barton & Loguidice to restore portions of several streams that flow directly into Conesus Lake. Restoration efforts were targeted to reduce streambank erosion and support water quality in Conesus Lake. This was a multi-year, multi-landowner, multi-partner effort including the Towns of Conesus, Livonia, and Geneseo, and Livingston County Planning with funding from NYS Department of State.

Balance, Integration, Collaboration, Communication

With a focus on balance, integration, collaboration, and communication, CC Environment & Planning creates strategies to develop and demonstrate sustainable land use and economic growth.

Balance

A high quality of life and true economic vitality relies on the availability of natural resources. Effective conservation of those resources relies, in turn, on the economic security of the community. The most vibrant communities have realized that one cannot exist without the other. CC Environment & Planning helps balance economic development with the ability of the natural environment to support and sustain the community.

Integration

During the early planning stages, CC Environment & Planning assists with the identification and assessment of natural resource concerns and opportunities. Proactive strategies will be developed, to minimize impacts and optimize conservation opportunities. Conservation becomes an integral component of planning and design increasing sustainability and saving time and money.

Collaboration

CC Environment & Planning utilizes a creative and collaborative process based on experience and a broad network to bring the right people, partners, and resources to the table. Sustainable growth models (sustainable site design, watershed plans, green infrastructure plans, etc.) are developed at the local and landscape levels tapping into the synergy of community-wide collaboration.

Communication

CC Environment & Planning develops education, communication, and marketing materials for clients, to share—and celebrate—their environmental efforts with their communities, members, and customers. Communication materials are also used to develop grant applications and generate partner support for natural resource and sustainable growth efforts. These materials include fact sheets, brochures, newsletters, press releases, web updates, and video presentations.
