Have you ever watched the program Curb Appeal on HGTV?
Homes on that TV show are transformed from drab to fab with just small landscaping efforts and exterior improvements. The “after” shots show dramatically improved properties.
While not everyone gets on TV for their exceptional efforts in real life, the City’s Beautification Advisory Commission reaches out to encourage, recognize, and celebrate the exceptional efforts of our residents and businesses who create beautiful “curb appeal” for their properties right here in Auburn Hills. It’s a terrific program.
The Beautification Awards Banquet, held in late September, honored 75 families and businesses this year with over 150 people in attendance. The honorees gathered to receive their award plaques, enjoy dinner, see a slide show of all the winning properties, and participate in a raffle of gardening items and mum plants.
This special event allowed residents to connect with each other, trade tips, and talk with City officials. It was fun to honor these folks as they play a critical role in preserving the integrity of our neighborhoods and setting a positive example for others. We hope to see you there next year!
