Outstanding Neighborhood Volunteer Award

Neighborhood Volunteer Awards

Each year Community Forum solicits nominations of individuals and groups who have made significant and positive neighborhood contributions through their volunteer efforts. A committee recommends nominees who are then confirmed by Community Forum.

  • Award recipients are recognized at a City Council meeting.
  • Recipients' names are added to a plaque on display in City Hall.
  • A special day is named in their honor by the Mayor's official proclamation.
  • A tree is planted in their honor.

Nominations are due by February 5, 2020.
