On November 15, 2018, East-West Gateway Council of Governments held its annual Luncheon & Awards Ceremony featuring the  Outstanding Local Government Achievement (OLGA) Awards.

Rise received the award for Leadership in Planning and Design Innovation for our work on the Gravios-Jefferson Historic Neighborhoods Plan. John Cruz, Data Management Coordinator for Rise, attended the ceremony and accepted the award on behalf of the organization.

East-West Gateway Council of Governments put together a wonderful video explaining the work done to receive the award and is featured below.

Thanks so much to East-West Gateway Council of Governments for the award and to our partners in this effort; Dutchtown South Community Corporation, Urban Werks Architecture, and Development Strategies!
