Nominate Your Borough for a Great Public Space

March 31st, 2021

The PA Chapter of the American Planning Association (APA) is seeking nominations for its Great Public Spaces, Greenways/Trails, and Streetsprogram.  Great Places are unique, memorable places that display a wealth of best practices in community planning.
According to the APA, Great Places offer better choices for where and how people live, work, and play. They are enjoyable, safe, sustainable, and desirable. They build healthy and resilient communities. Great Places also give their communities an economic boost by helping to attract and retain residents and businesses, as well as attract visitors.
