Southfield recognized as 2021 All-America City Awards national finalist
The City of Southfield has been selected as a national finalist for the 2021 All-America City Awards (AAC)! The 20 national finalists represent the diversity of American communities from the largest cities to the smallest towns, from east to west and north to south. The award, given to 10 communities each year since 1949, celebrates and recognizes villages, towns, cities, counties, tribes and regions that engage residents in innovative, inclusive and effective efforts to tackle critical challenges.
The National Civic League's President, Doug Linkhart explains the importance of using inclusive civic engagement: "This year’s finalist communities have managed the compounding difficulties of the past year, all while building equity and resilience. Their accomplishments are a testament to what can be achieved when government, residents, businesses and other stakeholders collaborate."
The City of Southfield will compete against the other finalist communities in June for the title of All-America City! Keep an eye out for more information soon!
