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 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.
