Please join Livable City for our annual Livability Awards and Member Celebration
November 19 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the historic Old Mint.
This event is an opportunity for Livable City to recognize innovators, advocates, and public servants for their leadership and accomplishments and celebrate with our amazing members and friends.
This year, we are proud to recognize David Baker, a Livability Innovator in architecture and urban design, and Leah Shahum, a Livability Advocate for cycling and sustainable transportation. Everyone is welcome to attend, and current Livable City members come for free! Earlybird tickets are $45 each and $55 at the door.
