Century Council announces addition of fifth "Century City" in program.

The Century Council has launched Portland, ME as the fifth city in its Century Cities Program, it was announced recently.

According to the Council, the new effort is called Project Portland: A Century Coalition. The project is intended to bring together the city's local government, law enforcement, community and business leaders in an effort to reduce drunken driving fatalities and the illegal use of alcohol by minors in the Portland area.

Portland joins four other cities in the Century Council program: Omaha, NE; Eugene, OR; Champaign/Urbana, IL and Amarillo, TX. The Council says that these cities serve as "Model Grass-roots laboratories testing innovative community strategies against drunken driving and underage drinking problems."

"We are proud to have the opportunity to support Portland in its efforts to combat these critical problems," says Council chairman John Gavin. "The purpose of the Century Cities campaign is not only to unite leaders, but to unite citizens. Reminding citizens of the dangers of drunken driving--to themselves and to their community--is a vital part of this project."

The mayor of Portland, Charles Harlow, added, "Project Portland will give our city an opportunity to implement innovative and effective programs to reduce drunk driving."
