Thirty-four property owners, residents and guests filled the Ballinger Clubhouse for the Mountlake Terrace Evergreen Awards Ceremony held on Sept. 18. The awards program promotes beautification efforts in the city by recognizing residents and businesses who take pride in maintaining their properties. The program also helps encourage conservation and sustainability.
This year’s presentation featured 21 award-winning properties, including 12 private residences from six neighborhoods, one business, and two multifamily properties. In addition, five Transformation Awards recognized owners who renovated their properties to become assets to the community. One Sustainable Award was given that recognized the property owner who best utilized green features to help preserve the environment. Thirteen honorable mention awards were also given out.
Winners were awarded a plaque to be displayed at their property, and a slide show of winning and honorable mention properties was shown.
“This event is a great opportunity to reach out to our community and recognize their efforts for taking pride in their properties. Mountlake Terrace is transforming one property at a time and community pride has grown each year since the Evergreen Awards were established,” stated Community Relations Director Virginia Olsen.
The Evergreen Awards began in 2009 with grant funding from the Snohomish County-Camano Association of Realtors (SCCAR). Officers from SCCAR have committed to stay involved with the program.
