The National Association of Town Watch has announced award recipients for National Night Out 2012, and for the ninth consecutive year, West Valley City’s National Night Out program has earned its recognition as a National Leader for communities with populations between 100,000 and 299,000. The award will be presented to the City Council at a regularly scheduled Council meeting in early 2013.
West Valley City has been participating in National Night Out since it first began 29 years ago. In 2012 it is estimated that more than 8,000 residents attended the 34 neighborhood block parties, four City-sponsored safety fairs and various neighborhood watch meetings and trainings during the month of August. West Valley City was one of several Utah communities to participate in 2012. According to the National Association of Town Watch, National Night Out 2012 involved 37.5 million people in more than 15,700 communities from all 50 states.
“National Night Out is a wonderful tradition for our neighborhoods,” said Mayor Mike Winder. “The event helps to build unity in our community by providing opportunities for neighbors to meet one another.”
