The Cumberland Valley Area Development District in London, KY has been awarded a 2019 Excellence in Regional Transportation Award from the National Association of Development Organizations (NADO) for the City of Williamsburg, KY Bicycle and Pedesterian Master Plan.

The plan was developed by Jessica Bray, Regional Transportation Planner, with the Cumberland Valley ADD, as well as Katherine Lay, Health Educator, with the Whitley County Health Department. It was adopted by the City of Williamsburg in 2018 to help plan for future goals in health, transportation, and safe communities.

The Excellence in Regional Transportation Awards showcase organizations for noteworthy projects and practices in rural and small metropolitan transportation planning, program delivery, and special initiatives. Award winners received national recognition at the 2019 National Regional Transportation Conference in Columbus, Ohio on June 17, 2019.

According to NADO President Scott Koons, Executive Director of the North Central Florida Regional Planning Council in Gainesville, Florida: “The Excellence in Regional Transportation Awards highlight the important results of programs and projects like the City of Williamsburg, KY Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan.
