BACKGROUND: The City of Margate's Home of the Month program recognizes residents for their efforts to maintain the exterior of their home in good condition. The Program was established to reward residential properties that contribute to the overall appearance of the City of Margate.

The criteria for this program is rather simple; the City is looking for a visually appealing facade and a well-maintained property to recognize each month. The age of the structure and how elaborate the landscaping or decorative features are, will not be considered. Other factors include but are not limited to:

                     Healthy lawn, neatly mowed and edged

                     Pruned and trimmed shrubs and trees

                     Minimum weeds in flowerbeds

                     Yard free of debris and clutter

                     Driveway free of oil and other stains

                     Buildings, fences, porches, windows and patios are in good repair

                     House numbers are displayed attractively

                     Overall aesthetic appeal

                     Pleasing appearance making the property an asset to the community


Residents of single-family homes, duplexes, and townhomes within the City of Margate are eligible to submit an application. The winner will receive a specially designed “Home of the Month” sign to be placed in the front yard for the duration of the winning month. Each month, a picture of the winning home will be placed on the City’s website, social media (Facebook and Twitter), Channel 78 on Comcast Cable and in the “Margate Matters” monthly publication. Winners will also receive a $50 gift certificate to a local hardware store and be recognized at a City Commission meeting.

Residents can self-nominate by completing the application via the City website at
