Each year the Los Feliz Improvement Association honors residents who help keep our neighborhood beautiful. The name given to these awards, “Meliora”, comes from the Latin “to make better.” As a previous winner stated, “These awards are a great way to recognize and reinforce that sense of pride in and responsibility to Los Feliz.” Meliora Awards are given in the following categories:
Best Renovations for a Single Family Home
Best Restorations for a Single Family Home
Best Renovation for a Multi-Family Home
Best Front Garden
Best Public Space
The awards recognize exterior or landscape work done in the last three years. This year we have an exciting new category, Public Spaces. That is, new or old public spaces that have had a recent renovation or restoration that improve our wonderful small borough. This includes areas like our library, parks, public gardens, Metro space, even small, perhaps not easily noticed spots that bring joy to our neighborhood.
