The City of Oklahoma City receives the national “America’s Most Livable Community Award,” presented by Partners for Livable Communities (Partners), a Washington-based nonprofit.
Partners announces the honor as part of the “Celebrating Champions of Livability” national awards program, which recognizes 23 individuals, five organizations and two communities for their role in shaping a more livable, sustainable and equitable America. Partners will host all honorees and their guests for a luncheon and awards presentation at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., on November 12, 2018.
At different intervals during the last 40 years, Partners has honored communities with the title "America's Most Livable" for their efforts to improve the livability of their communities by addressing such issues as smart growth, using a community's assets for economic and community development, innovative leadership strategies, undertaking programs for youth at risk and regional collaboration.
