The Birmingham Times

Birmingham’s Woodlawn Neighborhood Association took home the award for Neighborhood of the Year, while Five Points West won second place in the “Multi-Neighborhood Partnerships” category last week at the NUSA annual conference in El Paso, Texas.

On Tuesday, the City Council recognized residents for honors from the Neighborhoods USA (NUSA), a nonprofit made up of more than 500 local and national neighborhoods across the country.

Jason Avery, president of the Woodlawn Neighborhood Association, said his community received the award for its efforts to clean up their area.
