Portland has been chosen as one of America's 16 most livable cities by a group called Livable Communities, a part of the National Endowment for the Humanities. The award, which will be accepted on Thursday in Washington, D.C., by former mayor Ann Pringle, is conferred because of the city's efforts to make life easier for the poor and the homeless. The cities honored are being recognized for their ability to solve urban problems regionally or by forming private and public partnerships. Livable Communities has made the awards only twice and Portland has been honored on both occasions.
