SUNY-ESF Students Receive Planning Association Honors


SYRACUSE, N.Y. — An urban design project conducted by landscape architecture students at the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF) was recognized by the New York Upstate Chapter of the American Planning Association (APA).

During the spring 2001 semester, students enrolled in Urban Design Studio examined the greater north-side neighborhoods in Syracuse and developed an urban design strategy to inspire current planning efforts and support future development and growth. The studio is taught by Distinguished Teaching Professor George W. Curry and Christine Capella Peters, visiting instructor from the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation.

The project received Outstanding Student Project honors during the September meeting of the APA in Ithaca.

SUNY-ESF offers bachelor's, master's and doctoral degree programs in chemistry, construction management and wood products engineering, environmental and forest biology, environmental resources and forest engineering, environmental studies, forest resources management, landscape architecture, and paper science and engineering.
