Great Places in NJ

Great-Places-2014

THE NOMINATION PERIOD HAS CLOSED.  THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUBMISSIONS.  


The 2014 nominations are now open for “Great Places in New Jersey,” the Chapter’s flagship initiative to celebrate downtowns, neighborhoods, streets, and public spaces of exemplary character, quality, and planning. Great Places represent the gold standard in terms of having a true sense of place, cultural and historical interest, community involvement, and a vision for the future. They support their local economies and add value to their communities. “Great places don’t happen by accident – they’ve been planned for, designed, and maintained,” states APA-NJ President, Charles Latini, Jr. “APA-NJ chose to implement this program because our great places deserve attention, and other communities can look to these shining examples as best practices.”

If your municipality has a great place, it merits the recognition that comes with APA-NJ’s designation as a Great Place in New Jersey. Benefits include great media coverage, a place on the Chapter’s Great Places Map, and assistance with submitting a nomination under APA’s highly prestigious Great Places in America program. The deadline for submitting nominations under this year’s program closes on July 15, 2014.
