City of El Paso a finalist for 2018 All-America City award

The National Civic League has named the City of El Paso as a finalist for the 2018 All-America City Award.

El Paso previously won the award in 1969 and 2010.

The 20 cities named as finalists will send delegations to Denver, Colorado in June to make a live presentation to a panel of judges.

The finalists were chosen based on three projects that address the community’s most pressing challenges. The City of El Paso submitted projects that included empowering El Pasoans for services and leadership; career and educational opportunities; and public housing opportunities.

“What set us apart from all the other 20 finalists that were selected is that when we look at our challenges, we don’t see them as barriers, we see them as opportunities and we really take them on as opportunities to do more and really excel, not just as a city, as an organization, but as a community,” said Nicole Ferrini with the City’s Community and Human Development Department.

“(We) have all worked hard for this honor, and I am proud that we are one of only two Texas cities to become a finalist,” said City Manager Tommy Gonzalez in a news release.

The other Texas city to be named a finalist for the award is San Antonio.
