Fort Lauderdale was named the 2014 All-American City on Sunday by the C2020-701 National Civic League.
The America City Award recognizes cities, counties, towns, neighborhoods, and metropolitan areas across the country for exemplary community-based problem solving and civic engagement efforts that involve public, C2020-703 private, and nonprofit entities.
Joining Fort Lauderdale as a 2014 All-America City are nine other communities from across the United States: Montgomery, Ala.; San Pablo, Calif.; Brush, Colo.; Cedar Rapids, Iowa; Chelsea, Mass.; Independence, Ore.; Brownsville, Texas; Hampton, Va.; and Eau Claire, WI.
“We are honored to be one of only 10 communities nationwide selected as an All-America City,” said Fort Lauderdale Mayor John P. “Jack” Seiler. “Our Citywide Vision and Strategic Plan reflect our commitment to working in partnership with our neighbors to address challenges and develop transformative solutions to move our city forward.”
For two days, groups of civic leaders and community activists from 25 cities met in Denver to present their stories of positive change to a jury of civic experts and to network and exchange ideas and insights. Read more.
