The five person Jury, consisting of one member from each of the sponsoring organizations, was very impressed with all of the entries. Jim Donovan, ASLA, representing the Jury and the Vermont Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects, The Vermont Planners Associations, The Vermont Chapter of the American Institute of Architects, The American Society of Civil Engineers, Vermont Section and The Vermont Urban & Community Forestry Council said, “Once again we are very pleased with both the diversity and the high quality of the submittals to this program this year. They show that Vermont continues to value the importance of public places, the corridors that connect them, or networks of public spaces, from small public parks to the private natural and created places opened to the public. We hope that our next Public Places Award Program in 2016 highlights an even larger and more diverse collection of interior and exterior public places.”
