Winners of Annual Mayor’s Beautification Awards Honored by City Council

Redwood City, CA - October 4, 2005 - 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 were honored at a recent reception and City Council Meeting, where each of the winners and honorable mentions receive a special plaque or certificate, along with the congratulations and thanks of the Mayor and the Council, in honor of their civic pride. Click here for the slide show of the 2005 Mayor's Beautification Awards.

The annual Mayor’s Beautification Awards program, sponsored by the City’s Pride and Beautification committee, 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.

The Council extends special thanks to this program’s sponsors: the Civic Cultural Commission, BFI/Allied Waste Services, Glenborough Pauls, Whole Foods, The Port of Redwood City, Peninsula Building Materials Company, Sequoia Health Services, Wells Fargo, Norcal Waste Systems of San Mateo County, and personal donations from Cheryl Angeles, Maria Martinucci, and the Redwood Oaks Neighborhood Association

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 program helps 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 2005’s winners and honorable mentions in the Mayor’s Beautification Awards (some residential winners asked that their information not be put on the website).
