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. 

2019 BEST Neighborhoods Designation application is now available! The deadline to complete applications is Tuesday, October 1st, 2019. Please review program guidelines prior to submitting your application. If you have any questions regarding the BEST Neighborhoods Designation program, please send an email to BEST@plano.gov or contact a BEST Neighborhoods division team member at 972-208-8150.
