The City of Sequim has received an Outstanding Achievement in Local Government Innovation Award from the Alliance for Innovation for its Neighborhood Revitalization program.

The award was presented to city staff at the Transforming Local Government Conference in Reno, Nev., on April 10.

The award recognizes the accomplishments of the city’s partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Clallam County and other community organization in efforts to improve city neighborhoods through neighborhood visioning meetings, Rally in the Alley events and the 2018 first-of-its-kind Sequim Service Fest.

Ten cities and counties throughout the country received awards. Sequim was the smallest organization recognized.

Recipients were chosen by a multi-member selection committee consisting of city and county managers, innovation officers and academic representatives from across the nation. The selection committee looked for local governments that had shown their dedication to stretching and improving the boundaries of day-to-day government operations and practices, implementing creative business processes and improving the civic health of the community, city officials said.

The Alliance for Innovation is an international association partnered with Arizona State University to identify major trends in local government, research innovative practices and serve as a repository of information on the process of innovation.
