Introduced by Deputy Mayor Rina Cutler, Mayor Michael Nutter accepted the award and pledged to make every effort to get Philadelphia a "Platinum" next time. Mayor Nutter also signed an Executive Order to develop a Complete Streets Policy. Congratulations to Philadelphia and the City's Streets Department and Office of Transportation and Utilities for this milestone.

Philly Rocks!


Hopefully we'll get a New Jersey town into the ranks next year.
