Councilman Dan Shaw Honored with Citizen Planner Award
Councilman Dan Shaw was honored with the Nevada Chapter of the American Planning Association’s Citizen Planner Award at the group’s state conference in Carson City.
Councilman Shaw was recognized for his lifelong efforts to help improve the quality of life of Henderson residents and those living in Southern Nevada, through his work on the Henderson Planning Commission, the Henderson Parks and Recreation Board, the Clark County Planning Commission and Henderson City Council.
“I am honored that the Nevada Chapter of the American Planning Association has recognized me with its Citizen Planner Award,” Councilman Shaw said. “It has always been my goal to make our community better and to ensure that Henderson’s growth is smart growth.”
Councilman Shaw accepted his honor at the award ceremony for the 2017 DeBoer Awards for Excellence in Planning held on Oct. 4. The Nevada Chapter’s awards are named after Saco Reink DeBoer, author of the Boulder City plan and one of the master city planners of the Twentieth Century.
