MSNA Appearances Committee Guidelines

Mission Statement: To actively promote and encourage the appearance of MSNA neighborhood.

Yard of Month Guidelines: Regular mowing and trimming, flower beds cared for, lawn free of weeds, trees and shrubs pruned, all planting strips well cared for and attractive to look at.


Yard of month: Award to be given out every month except December, January, and February. Appearance committee members will email or call Beth Wills with a copy to Suzy Williams by the 25th of each month. Members are to mark their calendars, as no reminders will be sent out. Decisions on winner will be based on emails/calls received by the 25th of the month. Daphne Self will be contacted with the home chosen for Desparados gift certificate.

Limitations: In order to rotate awards, awards will not be given to the same home owner/renter during the same year or the next year. (For example, anyone receiving any award in 2006 will not be eligible to be chosen for another award until 2008). Committee members are eligible for awards.

Holiday awards: The committee will meet in August to plan these guidelines. They will be awarded every other year as stated above. The committee will also discuss giving awards in categories such as “Most Original”, “Most Colorful”, “Most Humorous”, “Most Beautiful” etc. These guidelines will be distributed to the neighborhood, and a date for judging will be determined.

Alternative Ways to Acknowledge Homes that are Perpetually Aesthetic: The committee discussed writing articles about these homes with pictures for the newsletter. Committee members will also write complimentary notes to these homeowners/renters. Other attempts will be considered to recognize these homes.

Distribution of these guidelines: The committee discussed the newsletter, the directory, the websight, or flyers as means of distributing this information.

Respectfully submitted by the Appearances Committee
Suzy Williams, Julie Griffin, Beth Wills, Myrna Cudlipp, Mary Beth Carpenter, Beverly Smith, Lynette Feagin
