“The Town of Callicoon is happy to acknowledge this wonderful achievement,” said Bose. “Nan Stolzenburg has been the Town’s professional planner for approximately fifteen years helping us with the development of our Agricultural Preservation Plan and the update to our Comprehensive Plan to most recently the adoption of our Renewable Energy Law. Nan has provided well-researched insight with each and every document or piece of legislation that she has worked with the Town to develop. Congratulations on this well deserved accomplishment.”
This fellowship is granted to planners who have achieved certification through the American Planning Association’s professional institute, the American Institute of Certified Planners, and have achieved excellence in professional practice, teaching and mentoring, research, public and community service, and leadership.
Invitations to join the College of Fellows come after a thorough nomination and review process, ensuring the candidate has had a positive, long-lasting impact on the planning profession.
“Individuals who make up the College of Fellows are the true leaders of the planning profession,” said past AICP President Valerie Hubbard, FAICP. “These individuals have made lasting contributions to the profession and have inspired generations of new planners. They are truly awe-inspiring.”
