Stop the presses! If you’ve ever muttered the words “WHO ME..Live In Louisville Kentucky”, be prepared to eat your words. According to a report in the Courier Journal Newspaper, “The U.S. Conference of Mayors has awarded Louisville first place in its annual City Livability Award competition.” The best part about the award, Louisville won the large city category beating out cities like Las Vegas, Seattle and Orlando.
According to Louisville Mayor Jerry Abramson, “The U.S. Conference of Mayors was particularly impressed with the city-sponsored programs through the Healthy Hometown Movement that encourage our citizens to get moving and get healthy.”
In recent years Mayor Abramson has been responsible for revitalizing downtown Louisville and much of the surrounding area. Having moved here some 15years ago as a reporter/anchor at WHAS-TV, I can tell you the changes in Louisville have been nothing short of miraculous. Mayor Abramson will be too modest to admit it, but his hard working positive attitude towards Louisville has helped transform this city a national showplace.
Mayor Jerry Abramson will accept the City Livability Award at the U.S. Conference of Mayors annual convention this weekend in Miami. Twice before Louisville has won the Outstanding Achievement designation in Livable City awards, but amazingly this is the first time the city has won the top prize.
Though home sales had slowed in recent months, it appears slow down has started to reverse itself. Even with the dip in home sales, Louisville has still out performed most cities in the United States. If you currently live outside the Louisville Kentucky area and are considering moving to a new town, consider Louisville and become a believer in what an American City should be like.
