About the Challenge 

Neighbors and community groups help shape Orange County's quality of life and building a more sustainable future.

The Mayor's Neighborhood Challenge is part of a sustainability campaign under the Orange County's "Our Home for Life" Sustainability Plan. 

Mayor Teresa Jacobs launched the first Mayor's Neighborhood Challenge in 2015, as a fun, free program to help residents and neighborhood groups join in friendly competition that can help their neighborhood thrive by becoming more healthy, green and involved.

"By challenging neighborhood organizations to become more involved in their community, committed to their health and invested in green practices, we can ensure a bright future for Orange County".
