65 Crocker, one of this year's award recipients.

Update on Thurs, Mar. 12 from Kevin Jackson, City of Piedmont, Planning & Building Director

“We’ve made the difficult decision to call off tonight’s Design Awards Gala and postpone it to a later date when health advisories allow. We will send an announcement when the gala is rescheduled on a date and time during which we can celebrate excellent design in Piedmont without circumspection.

The decision to postpone the event was made with an abundance of caution and follows Governor Newsom’s health advisory on COVID-19, which was released last night. Additional guidance is provided below.

Thank you for your understanding during this challenging time. The health and well-being of our community is a top priority and we hope these actions will make a meaningful difference as we all face this difficult situation together.”
