Miami Lakes, FL -At the July Town Council Meeting, Miami Lakes resident Mr. Jose Ramirez was recognized for the beautification efforts and commitment to keep Miami Lakes “Growing Beautifully”. In June, the Town and its Neighborhood Improvement Committee (NIC) in conjunction with the “IHeartMiamiLakes” campaign, invited all Miami Lakes residents to participate in the 2016 Home Beautification Contest. Mr. Ramirez not only made landscaping enhancements but also retrofitted windows and doors with impact glass, making his home more sustainable and resilient. Mr. Ramirez received a $1,000.00 Home Depot gift card to continue his beautification efforts, as well as a commemorative lawn sign.
Through the contest, the Town and NIC hoped to not only strengthen the neighborhood’s appearance, but also promote a greater sense of community through resident participation.
