22nd Annual Mayor's Beautification Recognition Program Honors Community Building Efforts in Making Redwood City More Attractive
Redwood City, CA - March 5, 2010 - For the 22nd consecutive year, Redwood City residents, non-profit organizations, and businesses are showing their civic pride by submitting nominations for the Mayor's Beautification Recognition Program. Individuals, homeowners associations, apartment complexes, businesses, non-profits, and others are invited to participate by nominating their own or others’ projects in a variety of categories, including: best architectural design; best remodel; best historical restoration; most beautiful garden or landscape; best compatible building and garden or landscape; and more.
The purpose of the Recognition Program is to encourage the efforts of community members in beautifying and improving their homes, buildings, and properties, and to publicly acknowledge and recognize their pride in being part of the Redwood City community. Applications are available online, by visiting City Hall (1017 Middlefield Road), or by calling 780-7300. The deadline for entries is May 28th, 2010, and screening/review of all nominations will be completed by mid-August. Recognition Awards will be presented at a City Council meeting in early fall.
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 Recognition Program helps to promote and enhance this image both within Redwood City, and beyond its borders. The awards show our neighbors and visitors that Redwood City recognizes the importance and value of keeping our City beautiful.
The Program is sponsored by the City's Pride and Beautification Committee, and 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 will review all entries, including a site visit to the nominated properties. “Before” and “After” photos of all nominated projects are required.
The Mayor’s Beautification Recognition Program is an easy and fun way to foster civic pride in the Redwood City community, beautify the entire City, and, of course, honor people and organizations for their work to make Redwood City a better, more attractive place to live and work.
