Mayor William R. Wild is pleased to announce that the City of Westland has been awarded the Honorable Mention City Livability Award by Waste Management, Inc. and the U.S. Conference of Mayors. The 2010 City Livability Awards Program awarded the City of Westland for its outstanding leadership in support of urban livability with its Play Planet play structure and H2O Zone spray ground.  The 20 award-winning cities were determined by an independent panel of judges, selected by the U.S. Conference of Mayors. The Conference of Mayors City Livability Program honors mayors and their city governments for developing programs that enhance the quality of life in urban areas. Established in 1979, the City Livability Awards are given annually to ten mayors and their cities; a first-place award and four Outstanding Achievement Awards for cities under 100,000 in population, and a first-place and four Outstanding Achievement Awards for cities of 100,000 or more inhabitants.

 The City Livability Award is one of the most prestigious and competitive awards by the U.S. Conference of Mayors,” said Mayor Wild. “It is an honor that our city has been chosen amongst hundreds of other city programs that were considered.  Moreover, this distinction would not have been possible without the support of our talented staff, generous volunteers and wonderful residents.”
