Front Street among nation's top 10

TRAVERSE CITY -- Exceptional character and an ability to accommodate a wide array of users landed Front Street among the nation's top 10 Great Streets of 2009 as determined by the American Planning Association's Great Places in America program.

The APA said Front Street functions as a complete street that serves pedestrians, cyclists, motorists and bus riders equally well. Other factors contributing to Front Street's finish include Traverse City's ongoing commitment to planning, historic preservation and downtown redevelopment.

Two other locations in Michigan also were named Great Places, including the city of Charlevoix's East Park.
