Neat Neighbors Contest Now Underway

Mayor Thomas Koch announces nominations are now open for the annual “Neat Neighbors” contest.  The annual contest aims to recognize Quincy residents that maintain their yard or property in the spirit of a Cleaner, Greener Quincy.  Each year 30 winners are chosen from throughout the city.

If you would like to nominate a friend, neighbor, or simply a house that does a great job with the upkeep of their property, call (617) 376-1251 or email  Nominations are open from now through Labor Day.

Winners are chosen at random from those properties that meet the standards of the contest; this is not a competitive evaluation contest. Winners will be announced in September.

“Quincy’s aesthetic appearance is a team effort by our residents, businesses, and local government,” Koch said.  “Working together, we have a city with more than 100,000 people that has the look and feel of a small town.  I want to thank all those folks that spend their time and resources to keep Quincy looking so great.”

Quincy has conducted a “Neat Neighbors” contest for many years now.  Thirty winners will be awarded a $30 gift certificate from a local garden center in recognition of their efforts.

“It is our hope not just to recognize those residents that maintain their properties but also to encourage others that do not,” said Commissioner of Natural Resources Dave Murphy.  “Beautification is contagious and one home can make it big difference in a neighborhood; both good and bad.  We hope to build increasing interest in property maintenance to keep our city both cleaner and greener.”
