About The Challenge

Neighborhoods are the building blocks of our community and neighbors who work together are stronger and healthier. The Sarasota County Neighborhood Challenge encourages neighbors to work together, learn together, do projects together in a way that is more sustainable, more healthy, and more involved.

Is your neighborhood up to the challenge?

Bring your neighbors together to get credit for all the hard work your neighborhood has already done together and to identify new opportunities to strengthen our community. At the end of the challenge, participating neighborhoods will be recognized for their efforts at the 2017 Sustainable Communities Workshop (slated for Fall 2017).
