Is Your Township a 'Great Place'?

Monday March 6th, 2017

The Pa. Chapter of the American Planning Association recently kicked off its 2017 Great Places in Pennsylvania Program.


“Great places” are unique and memorable spots where people want to be – not only to visit, but also to live, work, and play every day. They serve as a model for other communities with their exemplary character, quality planning, identity, cultural interest, community involvement, and sustainable vision for the future.


Nominations are now open for the 2017 Great Places in Pennsylvania Program so if you know a public space or street that truly stands out, the APA wants to know about it.
