Beautification Efforts Honored This Week

Posted by – Elizabeth Brennan, Executive Assistant

The beautiful fall weather this week was a perfect backdrop for the City’s Beautification Awards Dinner held Wednesday evening.   Eighty residents and businesses were honored by the Beautification Advisory Commission (BAC) for their exceptional efforts in creating colorful and inviting landscapes and gardens.  A slide show of the winning properties highlighted the dedication, creativity and enthusiasm it takes to create these enviable addresses.
