Solano County one of America's Top 100 for Young People

For the third year in a row, Solano County was named Thursday as one of America's Top 100 communities for youth and children by the America's Promise Alliance.

Solano County is one of only 44 communities in the country to make the prestigious list three years in row, according to the Alliance website.

Suisun City has long prided itself as a great City for families from our diversity of housing opportunities, to our quality local schools and our dozens of community events all designed with families in mind.

Here's how the Alliance described Solano County:
"Solano County, a suburb in the San Francisco Bay area, is a community that works together by valuing its children and enhancing the lives of all its residents. First5 Solano Children and Families Commission is dedicated to promoting, supporting, and improving early childhood development by creating, fostering and partnering with community resources and programs that support healthy and safe children, families, and community. They embrace the creative, emotional, social, cognitive, and physical development as key ingredients to healthy children becoming successful adults."
County Board of Supervisors Chair John Silva said:
“Solano County demonstrates on a daily basis what it takes to be a great community for our young people. Quite simply, we put our children first,” said Supervisor John Silva, Chairman of the Solano County Board of Supervisors. “This county is proud that our steadfast commitment to our youth has earned such esteemed national recognition for three consecutive years.”
