Celebrating its 10th anniversary, APA’s Great Places in America launches National Community Planning Month and 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.

The Village of Waterloo is an example of a unique, beautiful, and safe community that is deeply connected to its past, while moving confidently into its future. The village is achieving this in a focused, organized way by crafting its first ever Comprehensive Plan, with Main Street as the central focus. With a population of roughly 5,000, the plan for Main Street is truly a community effort that will honor Waterloo’s rich history as the officially-recognized birthplace of Memorial Day, while also positioning it as a community poised for progress.

To date, APA has designated 275 Great Places around the country. To learn more about this year’s Great Places and previous designees, visit
