Fernandina Beach is a Great Places in Florida Finalist

The Florida Chapter of the American Planning Association (APA) has named the four finalists in the People’s Choice Awards category of the Great Places in Florida contest. Fernandina Beach is among the final four, which also includes Lakeland, Lake Worth, and the Gaines Street District in Tallahassee.

From the Florida APA website, “Great Places in Florida is an awards program created to highlight Florida’s Great Places and the communities and people that have created them. Florida is full of amazing places that keep our communities thriving and make this state a wonderful place to live. Great Places stand out with their exceptional character and lasting value. They are memorable, perhaps even famous, but each deeply cared for and valued. Citizens, planners, business leaders and elected officials work hard to create, sustain and improve the places that we love and enjoy in our cities.”

Voting is open at http://bit.ly/gpvote15fb until Monday, October 19th at 5pm. The winner will be announced on October 23, 2015.
