Winners of 2018 Great Yards Award Recognized
Pembroke Pines, FL (May 23, 2018) -- The winners of the City of Pembroke Pines 2018 Natalie Belmonte Great Yards Award will be recognized at the June 7, 2018 City Commission Meeting at 6:30 p.m. in the Commission Chambers at the Charles F. Dodge City Center, located at 601 City Center Way in Pembroke Pines.
Now in its seventh year, the Great Yards Award contest was created in memory of Natalie Belmonte, a well-known resident and business woman who was known for her love of nature, especially butterflies, and who tragically lost her life in July of 2011. Members of the Pembroke Pines Environmental Advisory Board judged the yards on five components: Butterfly (the preservation of all stages of a butterfly's life), Design and Function, Maintenance, Florida Friendly Value and Use of Hardscapes. Applicants provided a brief description of their property, its landscaping, how it met the goals of the Natalie Belmonte Great Yards Award Contest and attached photographs. The winners representing each City Commission District and an at-large winner for 2018 are Jean H. Parrish for City of Pembroke Pines District at Large; Anthony Todaro for District 1; Kim Ramdin for District 2; Gregory Milu for District 3 and Joseph Zappia for District 4.
