Mayor David Bieter today called for nominations for the 2019 Mayor’s Awards to Good Neighbors to be presented during a ceremony held the evening of Friday, September 27.
The annual awards honor residents, businesses and organizations that exemplify how good neighbors improve and enhance our community. Awardees are nominated by their neighbors for going out of their way to help those around them. Nominations, which can be submitted at www.cityofboise.org/good-neighbor, are due by Friday, August 30.
While the Mayor’s Awards to Good Neighbors have been presented for several years, Mayor Bieter noted that past recipients embody the spirit of Boise Kind, the city’s community-wide effort to ensure Boise’s core values remain at the forefront of our mind as our city grows and thrives.
“Boiseans, by nature, are kind and welcoming, but we all know that there are those who go the extra mile to help their neighbors,” said Boise Mayor David Bieter. “We want to hear about them so we can celebrate their contributions making Boise such a great place to call home – and how their spirit embodies Boise Kind.”
The awards are part of the city’s Energize Our Neighborhoods community collaboration to make all Boise neighborhoods unique and desirable. September 27’s Good Neighbor Awards will be part of a series of events and activities sponsored by Energize Our Neighborhoods for the second annual Neighborhood Month in September.
Attendees will have an opportunity to learn about the projects being led by residents throughout Boise and the resources available through the Energize Our Neighborhoods program. Immediately following, Mayor Bieter will present the Good Neighbor Awards.
Event details will be posted online in the coming weeks at EnergizeOurNeighborhoods.org.
