The city of Southfield is currently seeking nominations for the 2013 Community Pride Awards, which recognizes Southfield residents that have gone the extra mile in their beautification efforts.
The program is coordinated by the City's Neighborhood & Information Center and the Southfield Parks & Garden Club to promote beautification efforts throughout the city. Residents are encouraged to nominate individual homeowners, neighborhoods, condominiums, apartments and even themselves. Public buildings such as schools, churches and synagogues may also be worthy of recognition, and residents are encouraged to nominate them as well. A team of judges will tour neighborhoods and select a list of winners in August. All winners will be honored by the mayor and city council prior to a council meeting in October.
Nomination forms are available at the City's Neighborhood & Information Center located inside City Hall at 26000 Evergreen Road, or they may be downloaded from the City's Web site at www.cityofsouthfield.com. Pictures of properties are welcome and the condition of the entire property will be considered for judging. All nominations must be submitted by 5 p.m. on Monday, July 15, 2013. Nominations may be hand delivered to the Neighborhood Center or mailed to: City of Southfield, Attn: Community Relations, 26000 Evergreen Road, P.O. Box 2055, Southfield, MI 48037-2055.
For more information, call the Community Relations Department at (248) 796-5130.
