Dear Honorable Mayor and Members of City Council,
I am pleased to inform you that the City of Alexandria’s Eco-City Project has been selected from hundreds of applications as a second-round finalist for the U.S. Conference of Mayors’ City Livability Awards. The City of Alexandria is one of 15 cities that has achieved this recognition among those with more than 100,000 residents. Of these 15 semifinalists, 10 will be selected for more formal recognition at the annual meeting of the U.S. Conference of Mayors in June. One first-place award, four outstanding achievement awards, and five honorable mention awards will be announced there. We will be submitting supplementary materials by the end of April for their consideration, with a final decision expected in mid-May.
