LIMA — The City of Lima Department of Community Development has announced a new program aimed at providing positive reinforcement to residents who maintain and improve the look of their homes and properties thanks to the Great Neighbor Recognition Program set to start next week.
Residents who have made a visible effort to maintain their yards and beautify their properties will see a colorful door hanger on their property as property maintenance code inspectors work in their neighborhoods.
“These door hangers are just to say ‘thank you’ to the property owners for showing pride in their homes and neighborhoods and to let them know that we notice their efforts,” Lima Director of Housing and Neighborhoods Susan Crotty said in a statement.
These recognitions will be in addition to the Lima Pride Home awards given out to one home in each property maintenance sector each quarter. Those are given to homeowners who have no property maintenance citations and have demonstrated exemplary property maintenance.
