The Pennsylvania Chapter of the American Planning Association announced the 2021 award winners of the Great Places in Pennsylvania contest, sponsored by their organization.

To qualify for consideration, a place must fit into three categories: great public spaces, great greenways or trails and great streets. Eight places were designated this year and to date, 46 Great Places have been designated across the Commonwealth.

When selecting the winners the association judged nominees on criteria that considers if they are “unique, memorable places that display community planning best practices, have an exemplary character, and a sustainable vision for tomorrow.”

Pamela Shellenberger, AICP,  with the Pennsylvania Chapter of the American Planning Association appears on Smart Talk Friday to highlight the 2021 Pennsylvania Great Places designees.
