Premier Neighborhood Award
Each year the City Council selects one Cedar Hill neighborhood for distinction as a Premier Neighborhood Award recipient. The award recognizes the neighborhood and its residents for achievement in communication, organizational activities, membership, community partnerships and beautification. The Premier Neighborhood is recognized at the second City Council meeting in May with the presentation of a certificate and a check in the amount of $250 to be used for National Night Out activities in October. Past recipients include:
2004 - Kingswood • 2005 - Windsor Park • 2006 - Cedar Trails • 2007 Wildwood • 2008 - High Pointe
2009 - Waterford Oaks • 2010 - Highlands South • 2011 Bent Creek • 2012 Creeks at Windmill Hill
Residents of The Creeks at Windmill Hill exemplify everything premier about a neighborhood. Construction in the subdivision began in 2004 with developer management of the homeowners' association. Recognizing the need to assure continuity in maintenance and governance of their HOA, Creeks residents elected to take a leadership role in management early on and by 2006 had assumed full responsibility for their neighborhood association.
Residents enjoy nearby Wooded Creek and the adjacent linear park with a spacious walking trail, professionally landscaped entry features and common area amenities much of which the HOA manages and helps to maintain. Despite being one of Cedar Hill's newer subdivisions, they have developed into an impressive group of resident leaders and neighbors enjoy a feeling of familiarity to one another and share a strong sense of community.
The 2011 Most Active award recipient, Creeks residents continue to excel in every award criteria category. In addition to a City-hosted web page, they maintain a community website, publish the quarterly Creeks Newsletter
that features Yard of the Season recognitions and a Neighbor Spotlight to welcome new families in the neighborhood. Their regular HOA meetings are well attended. They have also partnered with the City in events, construction and improvement projects and activities, and they sponsor their own quarterly events including a Holiday Yard Decorating competition and annual Fall Festival.
Under the steadfast leadership of association President John Tabron, with assistance from Januari Lewis, Sharon Hunter, Danny and Reeba Reynolds, Sherman Roberson, Renee White, Katharine Hunter and others, The Creeks residents are committed to making Cedar Hill a better place to live, work and play.
Congratulations and thanks to The Creeks at Windmill Hill for outstanding contributions to your neighborhood and the community.
