Congratulations to Ed Levy, Director of Architecture with Cromwell Architects Engineers, for receiving the 2019
Community Development Achievement Award from the Arkansas Community Development Society.
The Arkansas Community Development Society is an educational nonprofit organization whose purpose is to advance community development
and the community development profession. This includes an awards program to recognize
exceptional accomplishments of communities and individuals.
Whitney Horton, vice president of the Arkansas Community Development Society, presented
the award to Levy on Oct. 17 at the organization's annual conference in Conway.
Horton cited Levy’s many accomplishments through his work with the University of Arkansas
System Division of Agriculture's Breakthrough Solutions Partnership. This included
leading design charrettes in the communities of Harrison, Mena, Waldron, Mount Ida,
Clinton, and Eureka Springs to develop Breakthrough Solutions that will enhance the
quality of life in these communities and provide the future-altering breakthroughs
they desire. In part because of his work, downtown Harrison has attracted over 30
new businesses, installed one of the first bicycle-friendly road diets in the state,
and received several awards.
“Ed has the gift of helping communities see themselves through new eyes, to build
a shared vision for the future," she said. "Ed has given multiple presentations on
the ‘Power of Place’ to transform a community and the ‘Power of Visualization in Re-Imagining
Your Community’, and has helped re-imagine the communities of Dardanelle, Fairfield
Bay, Manila, Dumas, Rison, and Kingsland.
He has received local, state and national awards for his work with Breakthrough Solutions,
and his current community development work includes the Trail of Tears Museum for
Central Arkansas, the River Trail Landing for North Little Rock, the Johnny Cash Center
in Kingsland, and the College of Aspiring Artists in Dumas.”
We thank Levy and Cromwell Architects Engineers for bringing design and beauty to Arkansas communities.
