Mayor Thomas Koch and the Department of Natural Resources recently recognized 30 properties as recipients of this year’s “Neat Neighbors” designation. The contest allows people to nominate a property that beautifies their yards in the spirit of a cleaner and greener Quincy. The City received more than 90 nominees and picked winners at random from those that met the program qualifications.
“We are happy to recognize those residents that go above and beyond to keep their properties looking beautiful,” said Mayor Thomas Koch. “This is a labor of love for many people. They work very hard to help improve the overall aesthetics of our great city by taking good care of their properties. Their work has a ripple effect on improving the quality of life in our city and we should recognize them.”

Each winner will receive a $30 gift certificate to a local garden center to assist with next Spring’s beautification efforts.
“Our hope is that beautification is contagious,” said Commissioner of Natural Resources Dave Murphy. “One property can improve a whole block. The work that our Neat Neighbors do makes for a more livable and beautiful city for all of us. I encourage every resident to do their part to help keep Quincy looking great.”
