Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) November 26, 2014
The City of Fort Lauderdale recently captured the prestigious All-America City Award, which was presented by the National Civic League at its annual conference in Denver, Colorado. Established in 1949, the All-America City Award recognizes cities, countries, towns, neighborhoods, and metropolitan areas across the country for exemplary community-based problem solving and civic engagement efforts that involve public, private and non-profit entities.
Fort Lauderdale was one of 10 cities to win the award, and the only city in Florida nominated this year. The projects that the city highlighted in its application were the Dillard Innovation Zone Promise Neighborhood, the redevelopment of Flagler Village and Northwest Gardens. The Dillard Innovation Zone Promise Neighborhood project, for example, cultivates collaboration between community and businesses to support school improvement, health service interventions, mentoring, enhanced classroom technology, reading, and literacy initiatives at Dillard Elementary School.
The All-America City award is not the first national accolade Fort Lauderdale has received. It also holds the distinction of being among the “Top 10 Best Downtowns in 2014” by Livability.com, the “Top 10 Best U.S. Cities for Small Business” by Biz2Credit.com, and the “Top 10 Best Places to Retire” by Money Magazine. The list of achievements for this vibrant city is quite long.
“We’re seeing a steady increase in Fort Lauderdale real estate sales year-over-year,” says the gay Realtors Oakland Park team of Steve Visano and Ken Krukowski. “While Fort Lauderdale has always been known as a wonderful place to live, work and play, accolades like these certainly help bolster attention in the city’s direction.”
Fort Lauderdale is often praised for its exceptional year-round climate, beautiful natural surroundings, excellent recreational and social attractions, and wealth of pristine beaches. Being named an All-America City is just another wonderful reason to call Fort Lauderdale home.
