Each year, Leon County Government and the City of Tallahassee recognizes neighborhoods and neighbors that have gone above and beyond in helping to make our community a better place to live.

Small - 200 or fewer homes
Large - more than 200 homes
Unincorporated - outside the city limits

Leon County is also accepting nominations for 2018 Neighbor of the Year, an individual who exemplifies the characteristics of leadership and service in making contributions to his or her community.
