BEST Neighborhoods Designation

The BEST Neighborhoods Designation program recognizes neighborhoods that have gone above and beyond to create a community that is Beautiful, Engaged, Safe, and Thriving - BEST!  Applications are accepted on an annual basis in October from resident groups who are working collaboratively to create strong neighborhoods that make Plano a desirable place to live, work, and play.

BEST Neighborhoods are recognized at three levels: Silver, Gold, and Platinum. All awardees receive mention of designation status on plano.gov, a file image of designation status to be used for neighborhood websites, newsletters, and bragging rights! All designation levels are valid for five years from the time of award. 

The BEST Neighborhoods division will be hosting a Neighbors Connect Workshop for those interested in applying for the BEST Neighborhoods Designation program on February 20th, 2019. Please note that several changes have been made to the application. In order for Neighborhood groups to familiarize themselves of the new application, hear from past awardees, learn tips, and more at the next Workshop. The Workshop will be held at Carpenter Recreation Center on Wednesday, February 20th, 2019 starting at 6:30 PM. If your neighborhood is interested, please RSVP for the event here.

2019 BEST Neighborhoods Designation applications will be made available February 1st, 2019. If you have any questions regarding the BEST Neighborhoods Designation program please send an email to BEST@plano.gov or contact BEST Neighborhoods division team member at 972-208-8150.
