2016 Year In Review

Muhammad Ali’s affection for his hometown was one constant in his incredible life as a champion athlete and humanitarian. His passing last June brought the world to our city to join us in celebrating his life and legacy.

That story is told in these pages, along with updates on the tremendous progress we’re making in terms of jobs, investment, health, compassion, education, tourism, quality of life and more. Our momentum is strong, and the future looks very bright for 2017.

Within Metro Government, all of our efforts this and every year are fueled by our commitment to one fundamental goal: to help every citizen in every neighborhood reach their full human potential — that’s our definition of compassion.

There will only ever be one Muhammad Ali, but his journey from 3302 Grand Avenue to global icon serves as a reminder that we must keep striving for greatness for ourselves, our children, our neighborhoods, our city and our future.
