The City of Wilsonville is the winner of the Voice of the People Award for Excellence in Mobility from the National Research Center, Inc. (NRC) based in Boulder, Colorado. The City is to receive the award at the 101st annual International City/County Management Association (ICMA) conference in Seattle, WA, in September.

The City was nominated for the award based on the exceptional results reported in the City’s 2014 Community Survey in which local residents rated their level of satisfaction with Wilsonville’s mobility as one of the top three participating jurisdictions in the United States. The City’s survey, conducted by the National Research Center, uses a scientific, representative sample approach in order to ensure the results accurately reflect the community’s perceptions as a whole. The NRC survey is conducted in hundreds of other communities’ throughout the United States allowing the research organization to compare results and determine which cities, like Wilsonville, rate among the highest in any category.

Mayor Tim Knapp reflects, “We are in a fortunate position compared to many communities in that we have our own public transit system, an ever-improving transportation network, easy access to the interstate system, and a plethora of sidewalks, bike lanes, walkways and hiking trails to help community members get where they want to go. As we move forward we will continue to seek improvements to further enhance connectivity throughout our community.”

City Manager Bryan Cosgrove states, “This award reflects the high caliber of citizen leadership and professional quality of staff work that is consistently demonstrated in Wilsonville on a wide variety of fronts and over a sustained amount of time.”

In June, the City was notified of the nomination and invited to submit an application to determine an overall winner for the category. In the application the City identifies the steps and actions taken which lead to the exceptional results. The City’s application for the award is in the form of a video and is available to view at www.ci.wilsonville.or.us/MobilityAward.

The Voice of the People Awards are the only awards given in local government based on community opinion. The perspectives of the residents themselves determine nominees for the very best of community engagement, safety, mobility, foundations of livability, recreation and wellness, education and enrichment, natural environment, built environment and economy.
