Normal Circle Wins EPA Award!

The Uptown Normal Circle has won the EPA National Award for Smart Growth Achievement in the category "Civic Places."  The Circle is recognized for not just its innovative environmentally-friendly design and traffic-friendly transformation of an intersection, but also for its function as a gathering place for people. As the article points out, there wasn't a city center until the Circle was created. Lately, it's even been used for protesting!  You know it's a real gathering spot when that happens!

Driving around it, enjoying the green space, or gathering for civic/social events -- embrace the Circle!
