CA City Solutions

The League strives to showcase innovation at the local level that can serve to inform and inspire all California cities. The Helen Putnam Award for Excellence is a source of these best practices. Not only are the winners of the 12 categories each featured in Western City, the League’s monthly magazine, but stories crafted from a wider pool of the applications are also given regular coverage in CA Cities Advocate California City Solutions series. Many of these programs can be replicated to meet the individual needs of a different city.
 
Below are the two categories of Helen Putnam Award coverage. In addition, an easily searchable database of Helen Putnam Award applications is also available on the League website.
