Good Neighbor Award

The Good Neighbor Award is presented by City Council to individuals, families, or other groups that better our Northglenn community.

People that make a difference by helping others, beautifying our city, volunteering, supporting their neighbors, or in other ways demonstrate “Good Neighbor Behavior” are eligible for the award.

Not sure if someone qualifies to be nominated? Do you know someone that:
  • Shovels your sidewalk when it snows “just because”?
  • Mows your lawn when you’re on vacation?
  • Checks in on seniors in the neighborhood?
  • Organizes neighborhood parties or gatherings?
  • Brightens your day by pulling your trash receptacle up from the street?
  • Loves Northglenn and shows it in his/her own unique way?
  • Serves on a board or commission and is working to help shape the future of the city?
  • Volunteers within the community to help those need, keep us safe, or improve our parks/open space?
  • Takes action in a way that makes you think “I am so glad they are part of my community”?


Honorees are invited to a reception with council members the evening of the recognition ceremony. Then, at the beginning of the city council meeting, a brief introduction is read for each recipient. Honorees come forward to accept their award, and a photo of all recipients and council members is taken for recognition in city publications. A commemorative booklet with the achievements of each honoree is produced as a keepsake. Names of recipients are listed on the City of Northglenn Good Neighbor award web page. If a recipient is unable to attend the recognition ceremony, the award and booklet will be mailed to the individual if an address is provided.

  • Nominations are accepted year-round. There are three recognition events a year. For 2021 the dates are: March 22 (nomination due date March 12), Aug. 9 (nominations due date July 15) and Nov. 8. For 2020 the dates were:  Aug. 10 and Nov. 9. The April 27 recognition was cancelled due to COVID-19. There were no in-person receptions in 2020. Recognition by Council is at a virtual meeting, and honorees receive recognition items by mail or home drop off. 
  • Nominations must be by a current or former Northglenn resident.
  • Residents of any age are eligible.
  • The award is intended for Northglenn residents, however, if a nominee resides somewhere else but has a regular “neighborly” impact in Northglenn, he/she may be eligible.
  • Current City of Northglenn employees or current elected officials are not eligible for the award. Family members of employees/elected officials are eligible, but may not be nominated by current employee/elected official that is a family member.

  • A complete application form must be submitted (see below.)


In 2019, the City of Northglenn created a Resident Recognition program to honor residents that made a difference in the community. The program was implemented during the 50th anniversary of the city, and the goal of honoring 50 residents was exceeded. The success of the resident recognition program spurred the “Good Neighbor” award. See the 2019 Resident Recognition program honorees below.

The ENTIRE form must be completed for entries to be submitted.
