Montrose has won a 2013 All America City Award.

The Montrose Daily Press reports the award was announced late Sunday.

The Denver-based National Civic League chooses 10 cities each year for the award. It recognizes cities for innovation, inclusiveness, civic engagement and collaboration.

Montrose stressed its program to welcome returning veterans, its down development efforts and the reopening of a lumber mill.

The winning cities were chosen from 20 finalists.
