The biannual CLIDE Awards honor development and planning projects that exemplify the region’s Ten Principles of Development Excellence, which outline a vision for sustainable, livable communities in North Texas. They center on providing choices for how and where people choose to live and work, promoting walkable environments, transportation and resource-efficient growth, and mixed use and environmentally-responsible development—all in quality places that people will be proud to inhabit.
CLIDE Recipients were selected by a distinguished panel of four nationally-recognized experts in the fields of architecture, sustainable development, and planning.
