MetroGreen Visionary Award


In association with the 1991 ASLA National Annual Meeting, held in Kansas City, the Prairie Gateway Chapter facilitated a local service project.  Inspired by the Kessler Plan, the MetroGreen Plan identified a regional greenway system for the metro area linking existing parks, urban spaces and rural greenspaces by proposing a system of trails and bike paths.  This award celebrates the vision that the MetroGreen Plan started, but awarded to the city, county or governmental agency within the PGASLA boundary that conducts outstanding efforts to promote trails and greenways, like MetroGreen does.
