The Beautification Awards are the annual recognition of village residents and property owners that have strived to maintain and improve their property and neighborhood. Sponsored by the Village President and Board of Trustees, awards are given to those who have displayed an exceptional effort in landscaping, lawn care, planting, and general maintenance.
The village is divided into 33 sectors or neighborhoods and the members break up into teams to go through each sector and pick up to ten properties for consideration. Of those ten properties selected, they pick one as deserving the top prize or Blue Ribbon Award. The next four highest scored properties in that sector receive recognition in the White and Red Ribbon Award categories, and the remaining selections for that area receive an Honorable Mention.
Each August, an awards picnic is held for the Blue Ribbon Award winners where they receive a certificate of recognition and a yard plaque. White and Red Ribbon Award winners are mailed a certificate of recognition, while Honorable Mention Award winners receive a letter stating their accomplishment.
In January of 2010, a new recognition program was instituted by the committee to award individual property, commercial, and public sector owners for ongoing beautification of their properties.
This Beautification Committee recognition is given for:
Exterior remodeling of homes and/or business facilities
