Check back soon for application information for the 2006 Awards! In the meantime, here's information from last year.
Redwood City, CA - March 24 , 2005 - For the 17th consecutive year, Redwood City residents, non-profit organizations, and businesses are showing their civic pride by applying for a Mayor 's Beautification Award. Individuals, homeowners associations, apartment complexes, businesses, non-profits, and others are invited to participate.
Applications are available by calling the contact number below, or by visiting City Hall ( 1017 Middlefield Road). The application is also available online, where applicants can fill it in, print it, and send it in. The deadline for entries is June 30, 2005, and judging will be completed by the end of July.
These awards help foster civic pride in our community, beautify our entire City, and, of course, recognize people and organizations for their work to make Redwood City a better, more attractive place to live and work. 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.
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 prescreen the entries, and the final selection process will include a site visit to the top entries. Categories include best architectural design, remodel, historical restoration; most beautiful garden or landscape; best compatible building and garden or landscape; and more. If an entry doesn 't exactly fit into one of the categories, applicants can create their own category. Entering the Mayor 's Beautification Awards program is an easy and fun way to demonstrate neighborhood and civic pride, and help to connect with the community of Redwood City .
