The article reports on 2006 American Planning Association (APA) Journalism Award Competition. The winners are the "Lawrence Journal-World", published in Kansas, the "East Valley Tribune" of Mesa, Arizona, and "Times-Picayune" of New Orleans, Louisiana. The "Times Picayune" covers other locales that experienced natural disasters like the Netherlands, Japan and four cities of U.S. The "East Valley Tribune" focuses on growth and development of the fastest-growing part of the Phoenix metropolitan area. The "Lawrence Journal-World" addresses the central question whether a community would go to wrack and ruin when it grows, or would it retain its unique character.
