FAIRFIELD - Several projects across Fairfield were winners of the city's annual design awards, which are likely to be presented in October.

Fairfield presents the design awards every two years to commercial and residential projects that stand out for their architectural design or other features, city planner Brian Miller said.

The Pony Express Office Park on Westamerica Drive won awards in almost all the categories: site planning, landscape architecture, building architecture and building conservation.

The Green Valley Executive Center, which is also home to the Fairfield Cordelia Library, won awards for site planning and architecture.

Projects were nominated by members of the public, city staff or private businesses, Miller said. The judging was conducted Aug. 16, when a jury of local artists and planning commissioners visited all the nominated sites.
