Minneapolis Seward Neighborhood Named as One of 15 Great Places in America by the American Planning Association!

The APA announced today that the Seward Neighborhood was one of five Great Neighborhoods on their annual Great Places in America list.
Seward was named along with 14 other great places marking the kick-off of
the organization’s National Community Planning Month celebration.

APA’s Great Places in America program, celebrating its 10th anniversary
this year, recognizes streets, neighborhoods, and public spaces in the
United States demonstrating exceptional character, quality, and
planning—attributes that enrich communities, facilitate economic growth,
and inspire others around the country. The Great Neighborhoods, Great
Streets, and Great Public Spaces of 2017 are places that are unique and
exemplary in their amenities and infrastructure, cultural identity, and use
of sustainable and innovative practices.
