SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The Salt Lake City mayor received top honors over the weekend.

On Saturday, Rocky Anderson received a City Livability Award from the U-S Conference of Mayors for his work on the Religious Divide Project.

According to the conference, the awards are given to mayors who strive to improve the quality of life in their communities while working to meet the challenges urban areas face.

The Bridging the Religious Divide Project was initiated by Mayor Anderson in the spring of 2004. It was designed to give people in the community an opportunity to discuss the differences in religion and belief and how to bridge the differences to make a better community.

The project is the first of its kind in the nation.
