The City of Clearwater encourages its residents to get involved with their neighborhoods through The Clearwater Awards for Neighborhoods. As a result of “CAN” with its tag line: “Unite, Achieve, Grow and Win!” Clearwater residents are teaming together in their neighborhoods and are making a difference.

This year the first place award for “The Mayor’s Award of Excellence” went to the North Greenwood Neighborhood Coalition who was awarded $2,500.
