The Glendale Downtown Mobility Study has received a 2015 Award of Excellence for Implementation, Large Jurisdiction, from the American Planning Association, Los Angeles. The original plan received the 2007 President’s Excellence Award for Visionary Planning for Mobility, Livability, Prosperity, and Sustainability from the Southern California Association of Governments. Also in 2007, the American Planning Association recognized the study with two awards: the Award for Comprehensive Planning in a Large Jurisdiction from the Los Angeles Section and an Award of Merit from the California Chapter.

Nelson\Nygaard developed the City’s first multimodal Downtown Mobility Study to address the challenge of accommodating growth without significantly increasing auto congestion or impacting Glendale’s quality of life.
