Nominations Being Accepted

Council District 2/Residential Winner: 7401 Willow Oak Ln.

Do you know a yard that is the envy of the neighborhood? Nominations are now being accepted for the City of Arlington's Property of the Month Program.

The program, which launched last year, recognizes residential, multi-family and commercial properties that exemplify residents and owners who have gone above and beyond to make Arlington a better place to live, work and play. The goal of the program is to help foster healthy and attractive neighborhoods in an effort to showcase the beauty of America's Dream City.

"We want people to have pride in our city," said Stephen Allen, Code Compliance North District Supervisor. "We spend so much time telling people what they are doing wrong, we want to encourage those who are doing right. This also gives other property owners a good example to follow and it enhances the community overall."

In May, July, September and November of this year, members of the Property of the Month Selection Committee select one single-family residential and one multi-family/commercial property from each of the five City Council District to be recognized.

The 10 winners are chosen based on the following criteria: The property has no visible code violations, nor a history of chronic code violations and the property is one of the most aesthetically pleasing in the area.

Nominations for the May Property of the Month winners are due Sunday, May 15. Nominations, which can be emailed to [email protected], must include the address of the property, a photo and a statement about why the property deserves the awards. Those who make a nomination must include their name and telephone number in the email.

The Property of the Month Program, sponsored by Code Compliance Services, ties in with the Arlington City Council's priority to Champion Great Neighborhoods.

Last year, the program ran monthly from April to October.
