Premier Neighborhood Award

2016 marks the 12th year that the Neighborhood Advisory Board will recognize neighborhood organizations in the City of Cedar Hill for their work towards improving the quality of life in their communities. These awards recognize neighborhoods for achievement in communication, organizational activities, membership, community partnerships, leadership and beautification.  In the past, the board has nominated and evaluated neighborhoods internally, but this year we feel that Neighborhood Organizations and Crime Watch groups should play a greater role in this process. 

2016 1st Place Premier Award: Bear Creek Ranch

The 1st place Premier and Growing Green
 Neighborhood Award recipient receives a check in the amount of $250 to be used for community building activities.  A runner up will be selected in both categories and awarded at $100 award.

Neighborhood Engagement is a top priority for your Mayor and City Council.  It is important that each neighborhood in our community exhibit the values established by City Council.
