Energize Boise Celebration - Accepting Good Neighbor Nominations

Boise Mayor David Bieter is now accepting nominations for the Mayor’s Awards to Good Neighbors that will be presented during the Energize Boise Celebration the evening of Friday, September 28.

The awards honor residents, businesses and organizations that exemplify how good neighbors improve and enhance our community. Awards will be presented to neighbors who have been nominated by their peers for going out of their way to help those around them. Nominations are due by Friday, August 31.

“Good neighbors make great neighborhoods and great neighborhoods are the foundation of Boise’s success,” said Mayor Bieter. “Boiseans, by nature, are kind and welcoming, but we all know that there are those who go the extra mile to make our neighborhoods special and we are honored to recognize them and their important contribution to our city.”

The Energize Boise Celebration will begin at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, September 28 in the Maryanne Jordan City Council Chambers at Boise City Hall (3rd Floor). This event will be the culmination of a series of events and activities sponsored by Energize Our Neighborhoods for the inaugural 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 can be found online at EnergizeOurNeighborhoods.org.

Nominations can be submitted at energize.cityofboise.org/goodneighbor.
