Community members gathered at the Mountlake Terrace Senior Center on Thursday for the presentation of the 2018 Evergreen Awards.
The Evergreen Awards, modeled after the City of Everett’s Monte Cristo Awards, honors households in six neighborhoods. Awards can be given in up to five categories. This year, 25 awards were given in two categories. Thirteen residences received Best Maintained Residence Awards, and 12 locations were given Best Transformation Awards, to recognize owners who renovated their properties to become assets to the community.
Winners received a plaque to display at their property and viewed a slide show of winning properties.
Winning properties often had unique features, such as gardens, fountains, patios and well-manicured lawns, among others.
“Thank you to our property owners who maintain their properties to high standards, invest in our city, and improve our community,” stated Community Relations Director Virginia Olsen. “The Evergreen Awards is an opportunity to acknowledge those who are making positive changes in our community.”
