(Fargo, ND) -- Fargo Mayor Tim Mahoney touted recent national recognition for the city during Thursday's State of the Cities event. 

"As a regional leader, Fargo is mentioned in the same sentences as other high-octane cities in our nation. In the last year Wallethub recognized Fargo as a top 10 least stressed cities. Forbes ranks us as (among) the ten best places to retire, and we are the only community to have received that award ten years in a row," said Mahoney.   

Mahoney is one of five areas mayors who spoke at the event, hosted each year by the Fargo Moorhead West Fargo Chamber of Commerce.  He also pointed to a Wallethub survey which found the city in the top 15 nationally for best places for renters, and cited a study from Livability, which classified Fargo among the top 100 places to live.  Mahoney says one "next big thing" for the city includes moving forward with plans to expand and revamp the FargoDome.
