Winners of Annual Mayor's Beautification Awards to be Honored

Redwood City, CA - September 19, 2003 - From landscaping to remodeling, courtyard design to historic renovation, and architectural design to neighborhood improvement, the Mayor's Beautification Awards recognizes the best projects from throughout the community of Redwood City. This year's winners will be honored on Monday, September 22nd by the City Council, with a reception beginning at 6:15 pm at City Hall, 1017 Middlefield Road. Then, beginning at 7:00 pm at the Council meeting, each of the winners and honorable mentions will receive a plaque or certificate, and the congratulations and thanks of the Mayor and the Council, in honor of their civic pride.

The Mayor's Beautification Awards program is sponsored by the City's Pride and Beautification committee, and is designed to recognize the efforts of residents, non-profit agencies, and businesses to maintain or improve Redwood City neighborhoods. The program encourages attractive structural and landscaping improvements in our community. Single- or multi-family residences, apartment complexes, home owners associations, and non-profit or commercial properties are eligible. A panel of volunteer judges screened the entries, and the final selection process included a site visit to all entries.

As a community, the way in which we use, improve, and maintain our homes, landscaping, buildings, and gardens expresses an image of Redwood City. The Mayor's Beautification Awards help to promote and enhance this image both within Redwood City, and beyond our borders. The awards show our neighbors and visitors that Redwood City recognizes the importance and value of keeping our City beautiful.

Below is the list of 2003's winners and honorable mentions in the Mayor's Beautification Awards. Visit Redwood City's website at www.redwoodcity.org for information about the City and its services, the community, recreation programs, education, City government, and local business.
