World Town Planning Day Announcement – 2023 Pinchuk Community Builder Award

November 8, 2023
The Pinchuk Community Builder Award is an award offered by the Prince Edward Island Institute of Professional Planners since 2013. This Award honours the contributions of the late Murray Pinchuk to professional planning practise on Prince Edward Island. Murray worked with the City of Summerside for many years and actively contributed to and promoted planning on Prince Edward Island. The Pinchuk Community Builder Award recognizes the highest standard of community building excellence in the public and private realms. It is presented on World Town Planning Day, November 8, to an individual, group or organization that has demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to making their Prince Edward Island community a better place today and for the future, in a way that touches on either the built or natural environment.

The Prince Edward Island Institute of Professional Planners is pleased to announce that the 2023 Murray Pinchuk Award has been awarded to Bike Friendly Communities (BFC) for their work in making active transportation accessible and safe for all members of the community.

Whether through group rides, community engagement, advocacy and presentations, or education initiatives, BFC has worked tirelessly since 2019 to, in their words, promoting safe and accessible active transportation networks, allowing all people to choose cycling — not just for sports and recreation, but for making purposeful trips as part of their daily lives.

Thank you to BFC PEI on all of your essential work in making cycling a safe and enjoyable everyday activity in PEI.
