Texarkana, AR – The Texarkana Arkansas City Beautiful Commission awarded the first “Yard of the Month” Award for 2018, last Monday night. Jeff Brown, the Chair of the City Beautiful Commission, was on hand at the City Meeting Monday the 16th to provide the award to Ms. Toni Nix. Ms. Nix’s home is located on the corner of 23rd and Laurel and will proudly display the award sign presented Monday.
For several years the City Beautiful Commission has awarded “Yard of the Month” Awards to various homes and yards around the city. The only criteria to be nominated is for someone to recommend the yard to the commission. Once recommended, the Commission members review the yard, present the information at the monthly meeting and vote. The public is encouraged to recommend yards to commission members or through the commission’s Facebook site.
Jeff Brown stated that he always enjoys the opportunity to provide an award to a homeowner. Jeff said, “You’d be surprised at how many great yards there are in Texarkana. Sometimes we have a real struggle picking out just one.” Jeff also said he would encourage anyone to nominate a yard. “Community involvement is very important to the Commission whether it’s in nominating a yard or helping with one of our clean-up projects throughout the year. We need everyone in Texarkana to help make our city beautiful.”
The Texarkana Arkansas City Beautiful Commission is an all-volunteer commission meeting on the second Tuesday of each month. The commission maintains a Facebook site at: https://www.facebook.com/TexarkanaArkansasCityBeautifulCommission/
