When making your way around our beautiful city, you’ll notice that in every nook and cranny of Tallahassee there is a sense of community. You can see it. More importantly, you can feel it.
This sense of community exists because of our unique neighborhoods and the individuals who live in them. As residents, we can appreciate that our neighborhoods continue stepping up in a big way. From organizing beautification projects and crime watches to hosting food drives and block parties, every day brings forth new opportunities to engage with neighbors and showcase community pride.
The City of Tallahassee coordinates a variety of programs designed to help residents strengthen their neighborhoods and each year, recognizes notable neighborhoods. Recently, the City awarded several Tallahassee neighborhoods with the coveted Neighborhood of the Year award, honoring them for their role in enhancing the quality of life in our great city.
During the awards ceremony, hosted in coordination with the Council of Neighborhood Associations (CONA), Mayor Pro Tem Curtis Richardson presented SouthWood Residential Community Association with the 2018 Large Neighborhood of the Year (more than 200 homes) award and Oak Knoll Estates with the 2018 Small Neighborhood of the Year (200 or fewer homes) award.
Soon, each neighborhood will proudly display a shiny new sign at their entrance showcasing their new recognition.
