Winners of this year’s Monte Cristo Awards were announced Thursday in a community celebration at Snohomish County PUD Auditorium.
The awards were created by the city in 1994 to recognize Everett homeowners and businesses that take special care of their properties. Winners receive plaques plus certificates signed by the mayor.
Award categories were Green Gardening, for homeowners who have implemented natural or green gardening practices; Neighborhood Friendly Business, for overall visual quality from the street view; Pride of the Neighborhood, for homes and yards that consistently look their best; and Rejuvenation and Transformation, for residential properties that have been transformed by the owners to be a visual asset.
The Marian Krell Award honors a prior Monte Cristo award recipient who has excelled in the maintenance of their property over several years’ time. The Krell award honors the former director of Everett’s Office of Neighborhoods.
This year’s Marian Krell Award went to David and Socorro Roy of the Delta neighborhood.
