Each year, the Coalition for Smarter Growth recognizes individuals who have made significant contributions to smart growth development in the Washington, DC area. EYA's President and CEO, Bob Youngentob, was honored with the 2018 Prince Livable Communities Leadership Award at the annual awards reception.
The Prince Livable Communities Leadership Award is a tribute to Frederick and Diana Prince, who have championed smart growth development for over two decades.
The Coalition for Smarter Growth recognized Bob and the EYA team for their leadership in transit-oriented development and providing the "missing-middle" scale development:
"We are proud to recognize Bob and his team at EYA because they have led the way on high-quality, walkable, transit-oriented communities across the Washington region, providing “missing-middle” scale development that weaves seamlessly into neighborhoods and provides important transitions from high-density transit-oriented development to surrounding neighborhoods."
