The city’s Planning and Development Services congratulates interns Amanda Padilla and Emilio Levario, along with their classmate Craig Garrison, for winning the Legacy Project Competition at the 2017 American Planning Association Texas Chapter Conference in Frisco Nov. 1-3.

The Legacy Project is a hands-on community planning effort which focused this year on the revitalization of Downtown Frisco.

“Interns are big contributors to our department and Texas State provides an amazing group of young people anxious to make an impact,” Shannon Mattingly, Director of Planning & Development Services, said. “Amanda and Emilio are great examples of the energy and creativity students bring to a work place and we congratulate them on winning this prestigious state planning competition.”

Padilla, Levario and Garrison, all undergraduate students at Texas State University, competed against graduate and doctoral students from Southwestern Texas University, Texas A&M University and University of Texas at Arlington.

The American Planning Association provides leadership in the development of vital communities by advocating excellence in planning, promoting education and citizen empowerment, and providing our members with the tools and support necessary to meet the challenges of growth and change. The city of San Marcos is a member of the Texas Chapter.
