Nominate a Neighbor for a Beautification Award by July 26 

Make your nomination

Do you know a property that stands out from the rest? Nominations are accepted through July 26 for Beautification Awards that recognize properties that display outstanding gardening skill, landscape design and property maintenance.

The township’s VIP Committee selects winners based on nominations from the public. Properties are judged according to curb appeal, maintenance, and the design of green space which includes plants, color, texture and space. Monthly winners have decorative markers placed on their lawns and are considered for a Beautification Award which includes recognition at a trustee meeting and a matted certificate with a photograph of their property.

Everyone benefits from beautification. We encourage you to help us recognize deserving residential and business properties! To make a nomination, email Mary Zdesar.

Township Properties Are Recognized

WinnersSome well-kept properties simply stand out from the rest. A total of 13 stand-out properties were selected in 2018 for Beautification Awards from the township's Visual Improvement Program Committee (VIP).

Winners are honored each October at a Washington Township Trustee meeting that includes a reception for winners and an awards presentation and slide show of the winning properties.

Winners"The efforts of Beautification Award winners benefit the entire community by encouraging others to maintain attractive, well-kept neighborhoods," says Public Works Director Mike Wanamaker, staff liaison to the Visual Improvement Program Committee. "The awards are a way to say thank you to people who work hard to make their yards attractive."

Beautification Award recipients, who are nominated by members of the community, receive a matted and framed certificate with a photo of their property. The township's VIP Committee selects properties based on:

  • The use of flowers and landscaping
  • Maintenance
  • Overall curb appearance
  • How well the property stands out in the neighborhood.

Nominations are made by members of the community and winners are selected by the VIP Committee, a citizen committee established to help preserve and enhance natural beauty in the township. Members oversee public plantings, streetscape guidelines and other community beautification efforts.
