Home Beautification Contest






Do you or your neighbor have the most beautiful front view garden in the neighborhood? Is there a house in South El Monte that you have always admired its exterior appearance?  If so, the City of South El Monte wants to hear from you! The City’s Community Services Commission is accepting nominations for its Home Beautification Contest Program. The program recognizes community members who enhance and beautify South El Monte through their exceptional exterior home maintenance and décor. The award categories include: Best Landscaping, Best Lighting, and Most Unique. Winners will be recognized at a City Council Meeting and will receive an award lawn sign to be displayed during that award cycle.
