Got curb appeal?
The Pride of Marysville Neighborhood Improvement Award program is accepting nominations for 2014. The awards recognize neighbors and business owners who take pride in their properties in ways that enhance the appearance of the community.
The awards, now in their third year, are intended to inspire neighbors to improve their homes and landscapes, city officials said. Business owners are recognized for the curb appeal of their business facade and location.
“A well-kept home, neighborhood and business says that residents and business owners take pride in their community,” said Mayor Jon Nehring, who launched the initiative. “Pride goes a long way toward creating a great image for our city.”
Nominees are judged on visual enhancement, preservation of the character of their area, improvements (building, landscaping, signage, etc.) or enhancement of the natural environment.
The four award categories are:
Best Home/Pride of the Neighborhood; Best Block/Neighborhood; Best Business; and Mayor’s Choice – James Comeford Award to Downtown/Waterfront District Most Improved.
Award winners are drawn from a pool of nominees selected by the community then chosen by a committee made up of city officials and citizens. The mayor names his selection from the same pool of candidates.
Nomination brochures are available on the City website at http://marysvillewa.gov/prideawards and can be completed and submitted online. Brochures are available at these locations:
Marysville City Hall Lobby, 1049 State Ave.
