Great Places in Pennsylvania

The Pennsylvania Chapter of the American Planning Association  is looking for Great Places in two categories: Great Streets and Great Greenways/Trails. Great Places are unique, memorable places that work not only for their community, but as a model others want to emulate – places of exemplary character, quality, planning, identity, cultural interest, and community involvement with a sustainable vision for tomorrow.

We want to hear your suggestions for a Great Street or Great Greenway/Trail designation. Please submit your nominations by April 11, 2016, to be considered for designation in 2016. Nominations will be considered by the Great Places in Pennsylvania Judges Committee with notification to applicants in early Summer.

Nominations via the Web
All Great Streets and Great Greenways/Trails nominations must be submitted online.  All information is to be entered on or uploaded to the website.

 It’s easier than you think to submit a nomination:

  • Enter basic information on the online form
  • Upload a photo
  • Attach support documents and images

Please note: The online submission form cannot save a partially completed nomination.  The enter nomination must be completed in one session.  Before you begin, please assemble all information needed for the nomination and files to be uploaded.
