Comprehensive Planning Award

In April of 2023, PCE was awarded the 2023 Excellence and Achievement in Planning, Comprehensive
Planning Award of Merit (Small Jurisdiction) with their project “Villages at Almond Grove Specific Plan”
to be developed in Madera, CA from the Cen Cal APA. PCE’s Planning Department has been working
meticulously to accomplish the specific plan with the private developers. The entirety of the project is
1200 acres of mixed-use development and residential. Upon the finalization of the plan our client
thought it would be advantageous to apply for this prestigious planning award. With their support and
request, PCE applied for the Cen Cal APA award. In early April we learned of our accomplishment from
the local Central California APA chapter. We plan to apply for the state award in the Fall.
