The Neighborhood Recognition Program recognizes outstanding neighborhoods in three categories: Small – 200 or fewer homes; Large – more than 200 homes; and Unincorporated Area – outside the city limits. It also honors the Neighbor of the Year, which is given to an individual who exemplifies the characteristics of leadership and service in making contributions to his or her community.
