Last fall, BBC staff surveyed the Upper Central, Lower Central, Kinsman, and Kinsman-Union neighborhoods. We drove every street in our four-square-mile service area to identify the homes we thought had the greatest curb appeal and most well-kept landscaping.
After a review and discussion of the top candidates, BBC selected one homeowner in each of the four aforementioned neighborhoods as the grand prize winner of their respective area.
The winners were Niccole Jewell (3652 Central Ave, in Lower Central), Brenda Taylor Rosario (2349 E 61st St, in Upper Central), Vera White (3004 E 75th St, Kinsman), and Barbara Malloy & Klaus Williams (9713 Easton Ave, in Kinsman-Union). Each winner has received a certificate of acknowledgement and a $100 Home Depot gift card.
Three honorable mentions received $25 gift cards to Bridgeport Café at East 72nd St. and Kinsman Rd. They are Annie Tufts & Juanita Griffin (2645 E 61st St, in Kinsman), Priscilla Corley (6004 Central Ave, in Upper Central), and Marcella George (2221 E 37th St, in Lower Central).
We congratulate these very dedicated residents for going above and beyond to make their yards and landscaping look truly outstanding. BBC will once again be on the lookout for manicured lawns, flowers, shrubs, and trees at homes in our service area. Your yard doesn’t have to be elaborately designed for you to win, but simply look cared for and nice and contribute to the overall appeal of your street.
Prizes could be bigger and better in 2014, so we hope you will participate!
