New Hope’s 2021 RAVE! Award winners were announced and recognized by the New Hope City Council at its Aug. 23 meeting. 2021 RAVE! Award recipients are:

  • Outstanding Curb Appeal: Joel and Karen Latterell, 8000 37th Avenue North

  • Outstanding Landscape Feature: Raul and Carolina Rojas, 5785 Yukon Avenue North
  • Outstanding Property Maintenance: Jean Ann and Richard Buller, 5837 Meadow Lake Road West

The RAVE! residential property recognition program was developed in 2006 as a way for the City to acknowledge outstanding property maintenance and improvements completed by New Hope residents. The program allows the New Hope City Council to formally recognize and thank residents who have accomplished outstanding property maintenance and improvements, while highlighting methods that can be used to enhance and improve properties within the city.

Nominations were accepted through July 23 and 12 properties were nominated. On July 27, a volunteer panel of three judges, consisting of city commission members, toured the nominated properties. The panel then met to review the nominations and select the winners.

RAVE! Award winners received an engraved stone commemorating the accomplishment.
