Articles Government 06-26-15

The City of Arlington has received the U.S. Conference of Mayors 2015 City Livability Outstanding Achievement Award, Honorable Mention, for the Arlington: The American Dream City brand campaign.

Launched in 2014, a committee featuring all of the major brands in Arlington helped develop a brand that tells Arlington’s complete story, one that’s synonymous with hard work and opportunity. The brand launch was co-sponsored by the City of Arlington and the Arlington Convention & Visitors Bureau.

Arlington: The American Dream City is rooted in six pillars: diversity, reach, education, aspiration, metroplex and spirit.

This award recognizes mayoral leadership in developing and implementing programs that improve the quality of life in America’s cities, focusing on leadership, creativity, and innovation demonstrated by the mayors.

“We want to thank the U.S. Conference of Mayors for recognizing our new brand, which allows us to share the great things happening in neighborhoods, consumers and visitors,” said Jay Warren, Arlington Marketing Communications Manager. “When building the brand, our goal was to approach it by looking at the entire community. We wanted to make sure it represents all of Arlington.”

This year’s winners were selected by former mayors from a pool of over 200 applicants. It is the 36th year of the award, which is sponsored by the Conference of Mayors and Waste Management, Inc.

  1. Homes within 1/8 mile of the LABC drill site were forced to evacuate on April 11, 2015 when a gas well blew out spilling tens of thousands of gallons of fracking fluid into our storm drains and creeks. The site where this occurred had been problematic for some time, yet concerns of loud noises which sounded like explosions, and horrible odors making residents sick, went ignored by our city and state. These residents and countless others who are subjected to the terror of gas operators inside our residential neighborhoods might beg to differ on the merits of a livability award.
