First-ever Neighbor Up! week, April 12-19

Neighborhood of the Year Award: Ivywild

Ivywild is a dynamic community which is experiencing significant change and development.  After an extended period of uncertainty, marked by significant apathy in some quarters, the Ivywild Improvement Society has in recent years developed a vibrant board and membership base.  The infectious enthusiasm of its board has led to a new spirit of involvement and contribution by an energetic resident membership.  Because of this energy and the inclusive and imaginative way in which the Ivywild Improvement Society approaches the opportunities and challenges that are presented to the neighborhood, CONO was pleased to announce the Society as the 2015 Neighborhood of the Year.!
