Every year, Arkansas Business partners with the Arkansas Municipal League to present the Trendsetter City awards, which “recognize exceptional initiatives underway in municipalities across the state,” according to Arkansas Business.
For the past decade, Eureka Springs has been honored with multiple awards in several categories.
In 2023, Eureka Springs received the honor of Winner in two categories: Diversity & Inclusion and Education/Workforce Development. Eureka Springs also won Honorable Mention in the Tourism/Creative Culture Development category.
“It is such an honor to be named a Trendsetter City once, let alone three times in one year,” said Mayor Butch Berry. “These awards belong to our citizens who work closely with the city to constantly make Eureka Springs the best place possible for residents, our youth, and our visitors. We are particularly proud to be recognized two years in a row for Diversity and Inclusion.”
Winners were selected by an external jury and will be recognized at the 2024 Municipal League Winter Conference, January 10-12, 2024.
The program is presented by Crews & Associates and sponsored by the Arkansas Municipal League, the Arkansas State Chamber of Commerce and the Associated Industries of Arkansas, and Crafton Tull.
