Outstanding Neighborhood Volunteer 


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.   

Nominations are due by February 6, 2019.
