Pride Enhancement Program
Hesperia neighborhoods are vibrant and unique locations home to caring residents of all ages, ethnicities, lifestyles and incomes who live, work, invest and play in our High Desert home. The City of Hesperia’s Pride Enhancement Program encourages residents to nominate homes in their neighborhood through special recognition for adding to the charm of the neighborhood and enhancing curb-appeal thereby helping Hesperia remain a place citizens are proud to call home.
Residents whose home is selected to be recognized will be awarded $1,000 (two $500 gift cards).
