Neat Neighbors Contest Winners Announced

Mayor Thomas Koch has announced the 2022 Neat Neighbors contest winners.

Thirty properties from throughout the city were recognized for their efforts to keep their properties maintained in the spirit of a cleaner and greener Quincy.  Winners receive a $30 gift certificate to a local garden center and a handsome lawn sign they can display on their property highlighting their achievement.

The Department of Natural Resources solicits nominations each year from Memorial Day through Labor Day.  Each property is viewed to ensure it meets the qualifications for the contest and then the winners are randomly selected from the properties that qualify.  This is not a comparatively judged competition.

“We are happy to recognize residents that do their part to keep our city looking beautiful,” Koch said.  “There are thousands more throughout our city that do a great job year in and year out and I want to thank all of our residents that contribute to the great aesthetic character of Quincy’s neighborhoods.  Nice properties make for nice neighborhoods; and nice neighborhoods make for a great city.”

Folks are encouraged to maintain their properties and the grass border along their sidewalk.  Beautification is a team effort and it takes everyone working together to keep Quincy looking cleaner and greener.

“I want to congratulate our winners and all the properties nominated this year,” said Commissioner of Natural Resources David Murphy.  “There is a lot of time and effort that goes into being recognized and I appreciate everyone that does their part of make our city look great. It was tough to choose just 30 winners based on the number of nominations; there are hundreds of beautiful properties out there, even in a year with such difficult conditions with the heat and drought.”
