The City of Fort Worth was recognized last month for efforts to improve air quality over the past year.

Fort Worth was recognized by Air North Texas for outstanding media engagement for publishing three Air North Texas articles on its online subscription newsletter, City News, informing residents about the start of ozone season in March and ways to participate in Clean Air Action Day.

The University of North Texas Health Science Center received an award, earning recognition for outstanding partner involvement. The Health Science Center’s advocacy efforts helped with recruiting the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center for partnership. In addition, the Health Science Center hosted the North Central Texas Council of Governments at its annual Earth Day Celebration, participated in the City of Fort Worth’s Bike to Work Day in May and continued a program with The T to subsidize bus and train e-passes for students and employees.
