Neighbors all over town are starting to spruce up their yards and prepare for spring. So when you are out and about, be sure to make note of homes and properties that are starting to look enticing. They just might turn out to be great Monte Cristo nominees. Look for street appeal and eye catching plants and landscapes, colorful flowers, well maintained houses, and that little something extra that makes that home's appearance "pop"! You can nominate online or pick up a nomination form from the Everett Public Library, the Public Works office or PUD.
Who is your Everett City Council neighborhood liaison?
In an effort to reach out to, engage and strengthen relationships with all Everett neighborhoods, the Everett City Council has launched neighborhood council liaison assignments. Council member liaisons are attending neighborhood meetings as they are able and available. They are an information resource and a connection back to the full council. Each neighborhood has an Everett City Council liaison. View 2017 council neighborhood liaison assignments here.
Looking for ways to connect with folks in your neighborhood?
Walk the dog, stop and chat, admire neighbors' gardens and landscapes, invite neighbors to a potluck, put on a chalk art contest for kids on your block, create a tool bank to share tools among neighbors, invite people to swap recipes or plants. Find common ground, start a conversation, get curious about who your neighbors are and learn about their interests. Smile. Everett's a good place to be.
