The Beautification Commission is currently (June) in the process of reviewing properties in the City to nominate for a 2022 Beautification Award. Winners will be announced in September. Remember to look for the "Blooming Beautiful" yard signs at the winning homes and properties. The Awards Ceremony is held in early October.
