This is it: The next-to-last category in this yearâ€™s Swamplot Awards for Houston Real Estate. So far, weâ€™ve opened nominations for Favorite Houston Design ClichÃ©, Best Teardown, Parking Lot of the Year, Drive-Thru of the Year, Walmart of the Year, the Washington Ave Award, Most Improved Neighborhood, and Least Historic Neighborhood. Have you added your thoughtful suggestions to each of those categories?
The category this time is Neighborhood of the Year. What qualifications does a neighborhood need to meet in order to be declared Houston Neighborhood of the Year? You tell us â€” as you make your nomination! Of course, a neighborhood might be considered for Swamplotâ€™s Neighborhood of the Year award for vastly different reasons than another one might be considered for an award of the same name from, say, the GHBA.
Please note that entrants in this category â€” as well as all the others â€” need not be located strictly inside Houstonâ€™s municipal boundaries. Swamplot tries to track the idea of Houston as it regularly travels outside the city limits. (In fact, last yearâ€™s winner of the Houston Neighborhood of the Year award was . . . yes, Galveston.)
