‪Residents and visitors alike know to expect the very best from Florida’s capital city, which is why Southern Living is once again recognizing Tallahassee as one of the Top 10 South’s Best Cities. From our thriving economy that supports local businesses to our educational opportunities and beautiful landscapes, Tallahassee offers an exceptional quality life for all to enjoy.‬ #BestCityEver

🎉 #Tallahassee has again been named one of the South's Best Cities by Southern Living! Additionally, we ranked as one of the Best College Towns (looking at you Florida State University, Florida A&M University & Tallahassee Community College TCC) and had the No.1 Best Garden Shop - Tallahassee Nurseries!🎉

Setting us apart, they note, are our interesting historical sites, vibrant college life, ample access to outdoor adventures and connection to government. As locals, we know there are thousands of other reasons that our community is one of the best. We'd love to hear what makes you proud to live in one of the South's Best Cities. Comment below!

New Addition at Tallahassee Int’l Creates World’s Largest On-Airport Solar Farm | Airport Improvement Magazine

Did you know that Tallahassee International Airport has the largest airport-based solar farm in the world?

Last year, we adopted a Clean Energy Resolution supporting moving Tallahassee to 100% net clean renewable energy by 2050, and our solar farms are an integral part of how we will achieve that goal.

Building the world’s largest airport-based solar farm doesn’t come without challenges. There were lots of moving parts, an aggressive schedule and unexpected environmental and design complications. But the team developing the new 320-acre, 42-megawatt (MWac) solar farm at Tallahassee Internation...

COVID-19 | Florida Department of Health

As concern grows about the coronavirus, Tallahassee residents should know that our community is prepared. There have been two presumptive positive cases identified in Florida; at this time no cases have been identified in Tallahassee or Leon County.

Last week I hosted a meeting at City Hall with participants from the City of Tallahassee, FL - Government, Leon County, Leon County Schools, Florida State University, Florida A&M University, Tallahassee Community College TCC, Capital Health Plan, Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare, Capital Regional Medical Center, Florida Department of Health (DOH) in Leon County, and TalChamber. We are actively monitoring the situation and are united in how we intend to prepare and protect the public - and to effectively meet this challenge with every necessary and appropriate resource.

There is no need to panic, but each of us can do our part to protect ourselves and others from exposure to the virus. This means following the Centers For Disease Control CDC's guidelines for everyday preventive hygiene:

- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

- If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with 60%-95% alcohol.

- If you're sick, stay home.

- Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue, then be sure to throw it in the trash can.

- Routinely clean frequently touched surfaces and objects.

- Get a flu shot. Health experts recommend getting a flu shot to reduce the chances of getting the regular flu and weakening your immune system further.

You can stay up to date with accurate information from the Florida Department of Health at http://www.floridahealth.gov/diseases-and-conditions/COVID-19/ and from the CDC at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html.

Mayors of Tallahassee and Pensacola: Time to come together and find common solutions | Opinion

Today, Pensacola Mayor Grover C. Robinson, IV and I join our voices to say that our country is strongest when all levels of government work together to protect and advance the priorities of America’s communities and residents. You can read the full piece below or at the link.

---------------------------------------------------------------

As we approach the 2020 Presidential Election, it often seems like our political parties could not be more polarized. Democrats vs. Republicans, right vs. left, with little room for common ground.

But when you stop and look at the core of many of the major issues facing our communities today, they are not partisan issues.

As mayors, we hear from citizens every day who want to see sustainable infrastructure as our cities build and grow. They want opportunities to join the workforce and truly thrive in their careers. They want to see solutions to homelessness and housing affordability. Perhaps most of all, American citizens want to feel safe in their communities and end the gun violence happening every day throughout our country.

These issues are not limited to Democrats or Republicans.

We are both mayors in Northwest Florida – one on the east end, one on the west end; one Democrat, one Republican – but we agree on this: It’s time to come together and agree on common solutions for American cities and citizens.

As members of the National League of Cities’ 2020 Presidential Election Task Force, we are asking all presidential candidates to do the same by endorsing the Leading Together Cities Agenda, which includes a set of priorities and principles including respect, partnership, inclusion and accountability.

The Cities Agenda recommends that the future president adopt the following four priorities in the first 100 days of their administration:

- Building sustainable infrastructure
- Creating a skilled workforce
- Ending housing instability and homelessness
- Reducing gun violence

We at the National League of Cities believe America is best when we Lead Together. If you believe the same, we hope you will endorse these priorities and principles and ask your respective candidate to support them.

Despite our differences, we remain united in the belief that our country is strongest when all levels of government work together to protect and advance the priorities of America’s communities and residents.

You can read more about the Leading Together Cities Agenda at citiesagenda.nlc.org.

Pensacola and Tallahassee mayors: We are both mayors in Northwest Florida – one on the east end, one on the west end; one Democrat, one Republican – but we agree on this: It’s time to come together and agree on common solutions for American cities and citizens.

I am very pleased with the selection of Lawrence Revell as the next Chief of Police for the City of Tallahassee. Chief Revell grew up in Tallahassee and attended Rickards High School, FAMU, and FSU. He is a 28-year veteran of the department. I have full confidence in Chief Revell to lead TPD into the future. I also want to thank City Manager Reese Goad for establishing the most transparent process for selecting a police chief this city has ever seen. His selection of Chief Revell honors the community-based process and demonstrates his continued commitment to providing TPD with the personnel and resources necessary to meet the challenges before us.

‪I am thankful to the great men and women of the Tallahassee Police Department who serve our community tirelessly day in and day out and to Interim Chief Outlaw for his continued leadership. I am confident in TPD’s ongoing commitment to serving and protecting our community.

I’m disappointed that Antonio Gilliam has decided not to come to Tallahassee as our next police chief. I’m proud of the offer we extended to him, which he accepted on Dec. 4. However, since then Mr. Gilliam has decided to rescind his acceptance. I wish him & his family well.‬

Great to meet the Mayor!
While watching Live PD I saw an unidentified Officer pull up on the scene. He walked up behind a young Blackman who's filming other Officers. He place him in a bear hug from behind and slams him to the ground. I don't think he identified himself or have any verbal commands for the black young man to put his hands behind his back before escalating to a use of force. He man handles the young man and puts him in a pain compliant arm bar. While at his vehicle he searches the young man as he continue to yell hrs compliant and not resisting. As the Cop looks up and sees the camera he appears to mouth the word F-U-K. How many use of force this officers been involved in, How many compliants of excessive force. How many involving blacks. If his this aggressive with someone who appears to be compliant what level does he use against someone who resist. Was this Officer in compliance with the Police Department Use of Force Policy? Can this be investigated? They were following Officer Hill.
Please help spread the word so this Tallahassee family can receive a multitude of prayers and to receive donations for the medical care for their 4 year old with a extremely rare brain stem tumor. Her dad is a virology professor at FSU med school in Tallahassee Florida.
I would like to make a strong recommendation that each building, either home or business, have the physical address on the front of the building or to be painted on the curb so that if an EMT or even a customer can easily find the address. I can be reached at [email protected], 800 W Virginia St, Apartment 211, Tallahassee, FL 32304, or at 850 - 566 - 2439. Thank you for the opportunity to express this concern. Melba Armstrong

*Mayor Dailey & *Tally peeps please don't let them do this!! Bulldoze Lichgate!!!! I've been wondering about all the clear-cutting lately in Tallahassee these last few years! Apparently the ordinance was changed, or is not enforced by city growth management powers-that-be, to protect our oak trees that Tallahassee is so famous for! My father would be turning in his grave! This is Tallahassee not Miami people!!! Seriously, I always wondered why they clear cutted Cascades Park! It would have been much more beautiful w the infamous Tallahassee oaks left. 'The demolition permit for the Cascades project allowed for the clearing of 168 protected trees — palms, pines, hollies, and live oaks measuring over 40 inches in diameter. Only one oak tree, an 84-inch diameter specimen on the east side of the property, was be spared. "The trees that were cut down at Cascades were among the oldest remnants of Tallahassee's downtown tree canopy," said Jonathan Lammers, a state historic preservation planner.'
