Each year the Neighborhood Advisory Board selects one Cedar Hill neighborhood for distinction by the City Council as a Premier Neighborhood Award recipient. The award recognizes the neighborhood and its residents for achievement in communication, organizational activities, membership, community partnerships and beautification. The Premier Neighborhood is recognized at the second City Council meeting in May with the presentation of a certificate and a check in the amount of $250 to be used for National Night Out activities in October. Past recipients include:
Residents of The Meadows at High Pointé exemplify everything premier about a neighborhood. Construction of phases two and three of the subdivision began in 2001 with developer management of a homeowners' association, this in addition to inclusion in the Cedar Hill Public Improvement District No. 1 known as the High Point PID. Recognizing the benefit the HOA contributed to neighborhood viability and maintaining competitive property values, Meadows residents elected to maintain the HOA, taking a leadership role in governance and ultimately assuming full responsibility for their neighborhood association in 2007.
Meadows residents strive for excellence in everything they do. In addition to a city-hosted web page, they maintain a community website, conduct regular HOA meetings apart from the PID, in addition to having PID Board representation, and in 2012 exceeded all previous National Night Out attendance records with the inclusion of their Meadows phase one neighbors. They have partnered with the city on events, improvement projects and activities, and award their own Yard of the Month recognition to encourage neighborhood beautification. Although one of Cedar Hill's newer subdivisions, the Meadows HOA has produced an impressive group of resident leaders and neighbors enjoy a feeling of familiarity to one another and share a strong sense of community.
Under the steadfast leadership of association President Billy Poole, with assistance from Stephen Emerick, Marvette Washington, Vernella Readus, Elizabeth Melbourne, and others, Meadows residents maintain pride in ownership, quality in living and a solid commitment to being family friendly.
Congratulations and thanks to The Meadows at High Pointé for outstanding contributions to your neighborhood and the community.
