Louisville Named "Most Livable" City

Congratulations are in order for the city of Louisville! Louisville has just been named the "Most Livable" city by the U.S. Conference of Mayors in the large city category, along with West Palm Beach in the small city division.
Cities have been competing for this award for 33 years and is sponsored by the Conference of Mayors and Waste Management, Inc.. The award recognizes mayoral leadership in developing and implementing programs that improve the quality of life in each city. In addition, cities are chosen based on leadership, creativity, and innovation and how these qualities are demonstrated by the mayor.
The reasons Louisville was chosen included the pledge of Mayor Fischer to make Louisville a more caring city by signing a resolution committing to a multi-year compassionate Louisville campaign. This campaign included a "Give A Day" week challenging the community to help Louisville set the world's record for volunteering and public service. This week coincided with the Kentucky Derby Festival and led people to engage in volunteer actions from writing letters to troops, to reading to homeless children, to donating food and clothing.
