Goodyear named All-America City

Real Estate Agent with Results Guaranteed Realty

The big news for the week this time is the fact that Goodyear has overcome challenges in transportation, education and recreation and for doing so has been named one of the 10 All-American cities.  The honor came on the evening of June 6th at the National Civic League's annual conference held in Tampa, Fl.  Being named an  All American City requires an application that includes extensive information on challenges facing a city and how that city has met three of those challenges.  The challenges Goodyear was faced with were the congestion on I-10, attracting higher education and problems involving BMX riders causing damage to the city's skateboard park.  All three have been addressed or are being addressed right now like the widening of I-10 which wasn't supposed to happen till 2011.  Just another reason why I'm so bullish on Goodyear!

Congratulations, that is quite an honor for Goodyear !!   We were an All-American City back in '98!
