2015 marks the 11th 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. 

 Beginning April 16th – May 29th established Neighborhood Organizations and Crime Watch Groups will be able to apply to receive these awards. 

The Neighborhood Services department has also partnered with the BES (Beautification Environmental Sustainability) Board to offer a brand new Growing Green Award.    If you feel your neighborhood meets the selection criteria, you are invited to complete the application.

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. YOUR Neighborhood Award applications will be evaluated by its ability to demonstrate City Council’s Values within the neighborhood.

Lake Ridge

One of Cedar Hill’s largest planned developments, the Lake Ridge subdivision has over 2,250 homes located in the southwest corner of the city overlooking Joe Pool Lake.  Lake Ridge boasts one of the City’s most effective property owners’ associations.  But above and beyond their POA, they excel in organization activities with a robust events calendar that includes organizing an annual charity golf tournament that, for the sixth consecutive year, has raised money to benefit local area charities.  In addition to their annual POA meeting, residents hold regular neighborhood watch meetings, celebrate National Night Out, and lend their support to numerous City projects, Police, Fire department and recreation activities and events.  Lake Ridge truly sets the bar high in community leadership, organization and involvement.

Under the enthusiastic leadership of association President Chad McCurdy, with assistance from Carolyn Rollwitz and others, Lake Ridge residents consider Cedar Hill more than a place to live … they consider it a lifestyle worth living.

Congratulations and thanks to Lake Ridge for outstanding contributions to your neighborhood and the community.
