Home of the Month

home-of-the-monthObjective: Provide recognition to residents who have improved the exterior of the home and/or their front yards (curb appeal).

Selection: Each month the Home of the Month committee will walk the East and the West side’s of the Village and choose a home on each side for recognition. A “Home of the Month” sign will be placed in the front yard and photos of the winning homes will be published in the quarterly Peacock Newsletter.

Home of the Month Committee: Any resident is welcome to join the committee. In addition, residents who are not members of the committee can nominate themselves or a neighbor for consideration for Home of the Month.

Two awards monthly: The intent is to select two homes in El Portal each month – one home on the East Side and another home from the West Side; however, the committee may deviate from this plan. The homes will be selected by the Committee and announced on the 3rd Wednesday of each month.

We are always in search of new Committee Members. If you are interested in participating in the Committee, for any questions or to nominate yourself or a neighbor for consideration please send an email to elportalhomeofthemonth@gmail.com or contact David Ward @ 305-903-4927. We hope many of you will be excited and participate.

Congratulations to our two Home of the Month winners for February 2018!

The first home belongs to Ms. Barbara Joseph at 425 NW 88th St pictured here with Councilperson Roman and Home of the Month Chair, Andrew Naylor.


The second home belongs to Ms. Camila and Luis Laguada at 336 NE 85th St. Unfortunately, we could not get a picture of the homeowners but pictured here with their beautiful home are Andrew Naylor, Chair of the Home of the Month program, and the David Ward original Chair and Initiator of the program.


Thanks to both our winners for taking such pride in their homes!

We also want to recognize and offer a special thank you to David Ward and Cecil Ybanez for donating these beautiful wood “Home of the Month” signs. Your contribution is truly appreciated.

Nominations are made monthly. Have a home you’d like to nominate for the month of March? Send the committee an email at ElPortalHomeoftheMonth@gmail.com. Nominations will be accepted until March 15th and the 15th of every month after.
