The American Planning Association (APA) has named State Street in Bristol, Tennessee, and Bristol, Virginia, as one of five Great Streets on APA’s annual Great Places in America list, which starts the countdown to National Community Planning Month in October.

APA’s Great Places in America program recognizes the streets, neighborhoods, and public spaces in the United States demonstrating exceptional character, quality, and planning—attributes that enrich communities, facilitate economic growth, and inspire others around the country. The Great Neighborhoods, Great Streets, and Great Public Spaces of 2018 are places that are unique and exemplary in their amenities and infrastructure, cultural identity, and use of sustainable and innovative practices.

Locally, the Cities of Bristol, Believe in Bristol, and Discover Bristol are planning an event to celebrate State Street and its designation as a Great Street. After a brief announcement ceremony, Virginia High and Tennessee High School bands and cheerleaders will lead attendees in a giant coordinated line dance on one of America’s Great Streets. “Dance the Line” will be held at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 16th in Historic Downtown Bristol.
