- Believing that taking pride in the appearance of our homes and yards would contribute to maintaining stable property values – The Avondale Residents Association will again recognize individual neighborhood yards that exemplified the notion of “Beautification.”
- The Association will place a “Yard of the Month” sign for 6 weeks at each recipients home. Avondale encourages all neighbors to keep well trimmed lawns and shrubs and plant blooming plants for the enjoyment of all.
- Avondale believes in the notion that pleasant environments bring people together outdoors, increasing the enjoyment of neighborhood, the conspicuous presence of people increase surveillance of the neighborhood by neighbor’s walks. Well kept yards discourage criminal activity. Note should be made that pleasant surroundings help people to relax and renew, reducing aggression and increasing calmness. All of the things we want for our Neighborhood!
