Yard of the Month
One of our neighborhood association goals is to strengthen the beauty of our neighborhood. Many of our neighbors are putting forth an effort to make our neighborhood beautiful. The hard work and dedication of our neighbors in maintaining their homes and yards contributes to the overall aesthetic appeal of our neighborhood, and that is something that all of us in Lincoln Terrace can appreciate and be proud of.
Beginning in April we will begin honoring the Yard of the Month. To be selected as Yard of the Month does not necessarily mean that a yard is the single most beautiful yard in Lincoln Terrace, as it would be difficult to judge each and every home each month and rank them all in the order of their aesthetic appeal. A winning Yard will meet or exceed the judging criteria, described below, and be deserving of recognition.
A yard does not need to be professionally landscaped in order to be recognized. All neighbors in Lincoln Terrace are eligible, including those who have not yet become members of the home owner association.
Neighbors can nominate their own yard or a neighbor’s yard. Nominations must be submitted by the 15th of each month. If a nomination is made after the 15th, the property will be considered in the next month’s Yard of the Month.
The month of October will be awarded based on a Halloween Theme, November will be a Fall/Harvest Theme and December will be the Holiday Spirit. The children of Lincoln Terrace will select the December Yard of the Month.
