Sustainable Neighborhood of the Year award

Do you love your neighborhood?  

Are you and your neighbors working hard to balance environmental, social, and economic challenges to improve your residents’ quality of life?

Inspire your neighborhood to compete for a "Sustainable Neighborhood of the Year" award!  It's an award that Sustainable Tallahassee is giving as part of the Tallahassee/Leon County CONA Neighborhood of the Year recognition program.   

Getting your neighbors together to become more sustainable as individuals and as a neighborhood can be both fun and informative - and you'll be shaping a greener community! 

And because we want every neighborhood to be a winner, we'll provide you with all the resources you need!

Resources you can use:

Strategies:  We learned some great strategies from our Sustainable Neighborhood of the Year finalists.

Resources:  Check our Resources web pages for tips and sustainable practices you and your neighbors can adopt to become a winning team.

EcoTeams:  Our EcoTeams pages contain suggestions on how to get neighbors together to learn and share about sustainability.  You'll find lots of resources, videos, and links for information and activities.

Speakers: Ask us to provide a speaker for your neighborhood meeting for a formal - or informal - program on a variety of sustainability topics.  Lawn care, reducing the use of throw-away plastics, recycling, transportation, energy, community gardens - you name it!  Contact us at

Our Sustainable Neighborhood of the Year recognition program is on hold until more normalcy is restored after the Coronavirus impact ends. This is a great time to be getting your neighborhood on board with newsletters and emails so you can be a winner in our next submission round!
