The Buzz: Providence named one of the ‘most livable’ cities

Providence was recently named one of the “most livable” cities in America by the U.S. Conference of Mayors.

The award recognizes mayoral leadership in developing and implementing programs that improve the quality of life in America’s cities, focusing on the leadership, creativity, and innovation demonstrated by the mayors.

Providence received the award for its PopUp Providence project, launched by the Providence Department of Planning and Development in the fall of 2013 to enliven neighborhoods and engage residents with interactive artistic and cultural projects.
