Madera County Superviser Robert Poythress was honored last week by the San Joaquin Council of Governments, California’s Blueprint Award.

The purpose of the San Joaquin Valley Blueprint Awards program is to encourage quality planning and development by recognizing outstanding achievements and practices in the built environment. In recognizing and celebrating projects that reflect the Blueprint Principles, we hope to provide visual examples of attractive, functional and environmentally friendly projects that could have relevance throughout the valley.

In the nomination form, Poythress was honored for many projects to benefit the community, like the State Route 99 widening through Madera, Sugar Pine Village, Sustainable Groundwater Management Act, Neighborhood Watch and Freedom Industrial Park.
