Stuart, FL – The City of Stuart is pleased to announce that Historic Downtown Stuart has been selected as a finalist for the 7th annual Great Places in Florida award program by the Florida Chapter of the American Planning Association (APA FL).  

The award is an annual selection of places that represent the gold standard of having a true sense of place, cultural and historical interest, community involvement, and a vision for tomorrow. Each finalist is recognized for contributing to the greater community’s social, economic, and environmental well-being for the long term.

The initiative celebrates Great Places in Florida and the communities that sustain them, including neighborhoods, downtowns, streets, and public places. The three finalists were selected from a pool of nominations across the state by a panel of multidisciplinary experts. Great Places focuses on unique, memorable places that work for the good of their community and attract people to visit them.

According to the APA, the Great Places in Florida winner will be chosen by the public in the People’s Choice voting round, beginning on September 8 through September 25. People can visit the American Planning Association Florida Chapter website to read more about Historic Downtown Stuart and votes can be cast through the dedicated Survey Monkey link.

The voting round is now open to the public until September 25. Following the voting period, the winner will be announced on Monday, October 5.
