In order to recognize and celebrate the valuable contributions of those who are taking strides to build the strong sense of community that makes Arvada a great place to call home, the City created a Neighborhood of the Year Award. 

Neighborhoods can self-nominate to show how they have built a vibrant, connected community.  Our committee will award the top three neighborhoods, each of whom will receive a Neighborhood Identifier sign, and a neighborhood mini-grant in the amounts of $1000, $500, and $250.  

Eligibility

Any City of Arvada Neighbors Connected group is eligible that has facilitated neighborhood improvement in the past year by bringing neighbors together to complete projects, programs, or events that develop strong community bonds and neighborhood pride.  

Nomination Procedure

Please complete the nomination form online and send 5 photos that best represent why your neighborhood deserves this award to the Neighborhood Engagement Coordinator (email to CCanales@arvada.org, or submit a disc/flash drive).  

Nominations are due by Friday, September 28 at 11:59 p.m.

Additional Information

  • Each recipient will receive a Neighborhood Identifier sign, and a neighborhood mini-grant in the amounts of $1000, $500, and $250.  
  • All participants will be invited to the annual Neighborhood Reception for the Award Ceremony in November where the top three neighborhoods will be awarded.
