Dublin Selected as All-America City Finalist

The City of Dublin has been named a finalist by the National Civic League for the 2011 All-America City Awards for the second year in a row.

It's more great news for the City of Dublin.

The National Civic League announced Wednesday that the city is a finalist for the second year in a row for the All-America City Awards. 

“We're excited and honored as a city to be recognized. This is a tremendous honor," said Mayor Tim Sbranti.

In order to become a finalist, the city had to complete an application describing three community projects to address local challenges: the community’s effort to build the School of Imagination, the city’s affordable housing programs, as well as the sustainability programs and activities that preserve history, engage the community and create a greener future for Dublin.  

“We’re very excited about this year’s participants, a very strong group of contenders with great civic projects to brag about,” said NCL President Gloria Rubio-Cortés.

According to the release, the All-America City Award is an honor achieved by more than 600 neighborhoods, villages, towns, cities, counties and regions across the country. 

Dublin will join communities from across the nation in Kansas City, Mo., on June 15 - 17 to compete for the prestigious award. The city will need to rely on its community and business partners to financially support sending a delegation to the competition.
