Tune in to WGN-TV tonight at 5 p.m. for the announcement of the winners of the MPC-Chicago Architecture Foundation "What Makes Your Place Great? Your Secret Corner of Chicagoland" contest.
Twenty-four places from across Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana were nominated, and after 4,782 online votes and a lively discussion among a panel of Placemaking experts, four locations emerged as the region’s best undiscovered places. Though we can't tell you who they are just yet, the countdown is officially on!
MPC and CAF thank everyone who participated in the contest, whether by nominating or voting for your favorite “undiscovered” public space, or even encouraging someone else to nominate a place. Whether your favorite won or lost, it's places like these that make Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana a wonderful place to live. We hope you'll check out all of the nominees at PlacemakingChicago.com or by using this handy Google map featuring nominees from both the 2009 and 2010 contests.
