Fayetteville is a Finalist For All-America City Award
« on: April 07, 2011, 05:03:26 AM »
The All-American City will again be an All-America City.

Full story

Fayetteville is a finalist to receive an All-America City Award.

The National Civic League, which gives out the award annually, said Fayetteville is one of 26 cities that survived the first round of cuts among this year's pool of applicants.

The 10 winners will be announced during the June 15-17 competition in Kansas City, Mo.

The city of Fayetteville, with the help of a committee, submitted a 25-page application last month. The application fee was $100, and the city paid it, a spokeswoman said.

Fayetteville's bid focuses on the city's explosive growth, improved image and good economy. The bid highlights the growth of Fort Bragg as a result of base realignment. The bid also details the school system's Reading Rocks! program and the two Greater Fayetteville Futures initiatives over the past 10 years that have sought to improve aspects of the community, such as education levels, public safety and health care.

The competition's guidelines require applicants to explain three community projects that address local challenges. At least one project must focus on the needs of young people, the league says.

The National Civic League awards ten cities annually with this honor.  It is possible that Birmingham won this award in the past.  Fayetteville has won it twice already.  Most cities and towns list the year they won this award.

Fayetteville already won the award twice so I don't see the point.   :shrug:

My hometown needs to focus on better leadership, similar to what Raleigh and Charlotte has.  Fayetteville has a lot of potential to be a major business hub on I-95 (midpoint between Miami and New York) but the leadership is content with being Fort Bragg's suburb.

City leaders must be paying somebody off the committee.
