PlanPhilly has been selected by Planetizen as one of the 10 best planning, design, and development websites for 2009, representing some of the top online resources for those interested in planning, design, and development. The Top 10 is based on nominations by Planetizen readers and staff, and judged against a common set of criteria, including standards of web accessibility.
PlanPhilly was an honorable mention in the competition in 2007.
Here’s what the judges said:
“Streaming news, images, and commentary partially comprise Plan Philly, a project of PennPraxis, the non-profit “clinical” arm of the University of Pennsylvania School of Design. One needn’t be from Philadelphia to check out Praxis Projects for detailed looks at the group’s current projects, or mosey over from one neighborhood to the next with Google maps. But because the site is an attempt to engage Philadelphians about their city’s future, participation is also emphasized–all citizen journalists are welcome to contribute.”
