Nominate your street, trail, or greenway to be a Great Place in Pennsylvania by April 11, 2016.

The PA Chapter of the American Planning Association recently kicked-off its 2016 Great Places in Pennsylvania Program.

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

Nominations are now open and the Planning Department can help you seek the nomination of Great Streets and Great Greenways/Trails in Delaware County. If you know a special street or greenway/trail that truly stands out in what it offers residents and visitors, NOMINATE IT!!!!

You can view the Program Guidelines, Category Criteria and Nomination Form on the APA PA website ( The deadline for Nominations is April 11, 2016.
