Neighborhood Achievement awards

Jay FitzOur Town Neighbors

The city’s Office of Neighborhood Empowerment seeks applications for the annual Neighborhood Achievement Awards, which recognize the work of neighborhood organizations in improving, protecting and enhancing their neighborhoods.

Neighbors can tout their own achievements or nominate a neighborhood group whose activities they want to applaud. Neighbors and their achievements will be recognized at the city’s Neighborhood Awards Dinner, a new, invitation-only event.

Nomination-worthy activities include:

  • Beautification and place-making projects, green spaces, community gardens and other physical improvements to the neighborhood;
  • Projects, events and activities that focus on connecting neighbors with one another, like street fairs, potlucks, home tours, holiday celebrations and neighbors helping neighbors;
  • New or ongoing communication efforts such as newsletters, social media and phone tree networks; and
  • Activities related to launching, reviving or strengthening a neighborhood group.

Neighborhood leaders who would like to be considered for a Neighborhood Achievement Award should fill out this form and return it to Courtney Durrett at [email protected] before 4:30 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 3, 2023. For additional information, call Durrett at 865-215-3456.
