Riverdale launches Yard of the Month contest

RIVERDALE – The city of Riverdale’s Community Beautification Program, Keep Riverdale Beautiful, has been established to engage, educate and empower residents to create a more vibrant, clean and socially connected city of Riverdale.

The mission of the “Beautiful Yard of the Month” campaign is to promote goodwill and reward exemplary lawn care in the community, according to city officials. The purpose of the program is to recognize neighbors who demonstrate above-average efforts in maintaining their property, thereby contributing to the overall appearance of the community at large.

From now through December, the Keep Riverdale Beautiful Committee will select a lawn that best exemplifies the qualities of originality, beautification, creativity, and curb appeal. The committee will select one residential yard and one business yard during the first few days of each month. The winning yard(s) will be announced on the 5th of each month (with the exception of October and December in which the winners will be announced on the 2nd week of the month).

The winner of the “Yard of the Month” will be provided with a decorative yard sign to display their winning yard, as well as a photo on the city’s community website. The winning resident will also be celebrated on the city of Riverdale’s social media sites. In addition, the monthly winners will be entered in a quarterly drawing for a prize from a Keep Riverdale Beautiful sponsor.
