Congratulations to Ms. Lisette Simon and Ms. Jody Pearson, whose residence on NE 15th Avenue won a POP (Proud Oakland Park) Star Award!
The City Commission presented Simon and Pearson with the POP Star Award at the Nov. 1st Commission Meeting for significantly beautifying their home. Upgrades include an outdoor façade painted in tones of grey, a modern-style door painted in turquoise that highlights the entrance with coordinating porch furniture, new front yard landscaping, a new walkway and driveway, a garage enclosure, a large sunshade, a new fence separating the front and back yards and a new swimming pool.
The POP program encourages owners to take pride in their property and supports ongoing efforts to beautify and improve our community. POP Star Award winners alternate between private residences and commercial properties or businesses that have made a special effort to enhance their property through façade improvements, landscaping, remodeling, or reconstruction projects. In June, Sprouts Farmers Market was recognized as a POP Star.
