Chihuly Bride of Glass among VISION 2020 Award winners

The Dale Chihuly Bridge of Glass is one of the winners of a VISION 2020 Award, honoring those organizations and projects that make the Puget Sound region an even better place to live.

The Chihuly Bride of Glass is a pedestrian bridge featuring hundreds of pieces of glass artwork that connects the redeveloping waterfront to downtown Tacoma.

The honorees include innovative projects, programs and plans sponsored by public and private organizations.

“The VISION 2020 award winners show a high level of innovation, creativity and success. They are proof that our region is taking important steps to create a more livable future,” said Sammamish Councilmember Kathleen Huckabay, who chaired the awards selection committee.

VISION 2020 is a regional strategy adopted by central Puget Sound cities and counties that promotes a strong economy, efficient transportation, a healthy environment, and vibrant communities that are great places to live and work.

The VISION 2020 Awards will be presented at the Regional Council’s General Assembly dinner on March 20, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., at Seattle Center’s Fisher Pavilion.
