Toledo takes third place in liveable-city competition

Some interesting news for my little hometown:

The city of Toledo received third place tonight in an international competition that selects the most liveable cities in the world.

The award was announced in London, where a delegation of Toledo officials and community members went to compete for the award. In Toledo’s category, Malmo, Sweden was first, while Lyon, France, came in second.

Toledo faced competition from six cities in the 200,001-to-750,000 population category of the International Awards for Liveable Communities 2007.

Besides Malmo and Lyon, the other finalists were Edogawa City, Japan; Manukau, New Zealand; Niagara, Ont., and Wenjiang, China.
