2016 Great Places in America Awards

The California Chapter of the American Planning Association is pleased to announce the three winners of Great Places in California for 2016. A Great Place in California is one that exemplifies character, quality, and excellent planning. It can be anywhere from the beach to the mountains, from a large city to a small community. It can be a vibrant downtown, a suburban gathering place, a historic small town, a public park, or preserved open space. Most important, it must be a place where people want to be!
