About 70 property owners, residents and their guests filled Ballinger Clubhouse at the Mountlake Terrace Evergreen Awards Ceremony held September 14. The program encourages beautification efforts in the city by recognizing residents and businesses who take pride in maintaining their properties. This program also helps promote conservation as part of the city’s sustainability strategy.
This year’s presentation featured 25 award winning properties, including 14 Best Maintained Residence Awards from six neighborhoods. In addition, 10 Best Transformation Awards recognized owners who renovated their properties to become assets to the community. Most Sustainable recognition was awarded to one property owner for best utilization of green features to help preserve the environment. Eight honorable mention awards were also presented. Winners received a plaque to display at their property and viewed a slide show of winning and honorable mention properties.
Desserts for the reception were provided by two Transformation Award recipients – Crema de la Crema, Inc. and Snohomish Pie Company who were recognized for successful transformations of their properties.
"This event is a wonderful way to recognize our community for their hard work and care to enhance their properties. Mountlake Terrace is really undergoing a transformation throughout the city and our community members have played a huge role to improve our city one property at a time," stated Community Relations Director Virginia Olsen.
