Kingston’s Springer Market Square has been nominated for national recognition as a Great Public Space.
The Canadian Institute of Planners recognizes communities through the Great Places in Canada awards.
There’s one for great street, neighbourhood and public space.
Voting is underway and ends at midnight on October 17th.
There are 13 nominees in the public space category, including Springer Market Square, which gained national attention for hosting the Tragically Hip viewing party on August 20th.
So, what happens if Springer Market Square wins?
The prize is more about bragging rights than anything else
The winner of the Great Place award will receive a plaque to put on display.
But hey, if we do get it, we could put it beside that commemorative stone the city is working on!
