Yard of the Month

Council Representative John McKinney presented Altona Mefford with the Yard of the Month Award for her Asian inspired landscape that is impeccably maintained. Contributed photo.

Altona Mefford was chosen by the City of Brookings as September’s residential yard of the month winner. Her home is located at 420 Buena Vista Loop. No commercial winner was chosen for September.

The Yard of the Month program, begun in 2002, recognizes the most attractive residential and commercial properties inside the City limits, May through September. Monthly award recipients receive a $50 credit on their water bill, a commemorative certificate, and a sign posted at their property declaring their award-winning status.

Nominations may be made by email or phone to Lauri Ziemer, lziemer@brookings.or.us; 541-469-1103.
