Created in 1994 by a committee of residents working with the Office of Neighborhoods, the Monte Cristo Awards recognize neighbors who help make Everett special by taking pride in their property. The awards inspire other neighbors to improve their homes and landscapes. Business owners are recognized for the visual street appeal of their business locations. The Council of Neighborhoods chooses award winners from properties that have been nominated by the community
