Since 1949, the National Civic League has recognized and celebrated the best in American civic innovation with the prestigious All-America City Award. The National Civic League announced the winners of the 2018 All-America City Award (AAC). Each of the winning communities demonstrated civic engagement practices that are inspirational, inclusive and promising in their ability to unite members of the community to collectively and collaboratively help solve our country’s most pressing and complex issues.
Mount Pleasant was named due to their efforts in employing a balance of outreach from city departments and officials and engagement with community members through partnerships, dialogue and forums. The AAC finalists each provided a community presentation to the awards jury on June 23-24, which then selected the winners, at this year’s ceremony in Denver.
