Nominate a Great Public Place in Your City

The American Planning Association has started a yearly Great Places awards program that gives credit to great neighborhoods and great public spaces. We mentioned the winners last year, that included Pittsburgh’s Mellon Square, New York’s Central Park and Portland’s Pioneer Courthouse Square.

Do you have a park or other public space in mind that should be designated as a Great Public Space? A park or plaza in your community that meets the characteristics described by APA? Here’s a chance to bring some credit where credit is due and nominate a place at the APA’s website here.

  1. The submission deadline for this was February 26th. Any submissions from this point on will be for 2010, not 2009. Thanks for the heads up though.

  2. Thanks, Randy. I guess it never hurts to nominate a great public space, even if the deadline has passed 🙂

    We’ll have to get that up earlier next year….
