Tempe is full of residents, civic organizations and businesses that help strengthen the community through neighborhood outreach and involvement. Now is your chance to publicly recognize and thank them. The annual Neighborhood Awards presents the perfect opportunity to honor: residents who put the “neighbor” in our neighborhoods; properties that contribute to neighborhoods through renovations, improvement projects, impeccable maintenance or holiday décor; and residents who recognize alleys behind their homes are their responsibility and keep them neat and tidy.
