Three times a year, the Community Activities and Beautification Committee recognizes those residents who maintain, renovate, and take enough pride in their homes that they become showcases for the entire neighborhood! If you know a home that you think should be considered for this award, please submit a Home Spotlight Nomination Form.
Proud, diligent homeowners are the heart of strong, safe neighborhoods and a vibrant city. By keeping La Palma beautiful, residents like these are one of the many reasons why La Palma has been named one of the best places to live in the United States!
The City of La Palma would like to congratulate the residents on Shirley Drive for winning the 2018 Summer Home Spotlight Award!
The residents have lived in La Palma since 1990. Their home has been renovated from 'curb to backyard fence' starting in late 2014 and ending Spring 2016. The front yard uses a lot of concrete and stone work, with small patches of grass that require very little water. The new trees and shrubbery are drought tolerant. The same applies to my back yard, which was totally gutted and replanted with the same type of plants and hardscape. The roof was recently replaced. During the remodel the interior of the house was redone with all new plumbing, electrical, kitchen and bathrooms, ceiling fans in most rooms, which have really reduced the need to have the AC on, and, custom cabinets and woodwork throughout.
The City of La Palma would like to congratulate resident Gilbert Granger of Shirley Drive for winning the 2018 Spring Home Spotlight Award!
Mr. Granger has resided in La Palma for the past 50 years. Gilbert's son, Hugh Granger, recently updated the front lawn with a desert landscape of drought tolerant plants, and included a crystal blue rock water-less waterfall down the middle of the front lawn. Congratulations Gilbert Granger!
