Don't Hesitate: Nominate!
Keep Lakewood Beautiful, a community group that supports the Adopt-A-Spot Program, Earth Day and the Spring Humus Sale, also sponsors an annual Beautiful Home Award process. The pictures accompanying this article are the 2015 Beautiful Home winners - beautiful, right?
How are the homes selected? Homes are nominated by...well, you...we hope! Nominations are sorted according to the geography of the seven school districts and are winnowed down to two per district. A panel comprised of local luminaries and KLB Board members have the difficult task of picking one winner per district. Lakewood City Council has welcomed the gala award ceremony being scheduled during a winter month, just when remembering summer's warmth and beauty is most needed.
Now is the time to submit nominations! Winning homes share: eye-popping landscaping, overall good property maintenance, and that indefinable but recognizable element that says "exceptional"!
Nominating is EASY! Go to the City of Lakewood’s website at www.onelakewood.com and simply follow the directions to submit a residential address.
Don't delay! Nominations close on August 15, 2016. Thank you!
