Isn’t Ann Arbor a wonderful town! We love being part of this beautiful community. We are proud to read this morning that our downtown is one of the finest in the whole nation! (Of course we already knew that – but it’s nice to be recognized. In AnnArbor.com news this morning, I read that Ann Arbor’s Main Street was chosen by the American Planning Association as one of the TOP 10 in the nation in it’s “2009 Great Places in America: Streets contest” They cited not only the unique businesses and the great community gathering activity, but also the planning and development that is being done to move the city toward a lower carbon footprint: better public transportation, denser housing development, and preserving of historic storefronts and buildings in the area. Ann Arbor has a unique character that is wonderful to have recognized nationwide.
