Two Massachusetts Neighborhoods Make APA’s 2018 ‘Best Places’ List

Sep 26, 2018

The American Planning Association (APA) has awarded 15 locations with the Great Places designation—a recognition for the work of planners and communities in creating great neighborhoods, streets, and public spaces. Two of those are located in Massachusetts.

Lowell’s Canalway Cultural District and the village of Shelburne Falls were both recognized for representing the gold standard in planning and demonstrate why stakeholder engagement at the local, state, and federal levels matters.

See the announcement, photos and plans for these and other “Great Places” on the APA website and local news highlighting the honor for Shelburne Falls.
