City Award, City Manager's Office
The City of Longmont is a winner
of the National Civic League's 2006 All-America City Award. The All-America
City (AAC) Award program is the nation's oldest community recognition
effort. Founded in 1949 by then National Civic League (NCL) board chair George
Gallup Sr., the AAC Award recognizes communities of all size — including
neighborhoods, towns, cities, counties and regions — who have made major
progress in meeting their most important needs.
The All-America City Award is America's
original and most prestigious community recognition award. Since 1949, the
Award has honored communities of all sizes (cities, towns, counties,
neighborhoods and regions) where community members, government,
businesses and nonprofit organizations work together to address critical local
issues. More than 500 communities have earned this distinguished title
and many have earned it more than once. The All-America City Jury reviewed
the finalists in Anaheim, California on June 10 and 11.
