Neighborhood Beautification Program

The St. Ann Beautification Committee was formed to work with the community to establish a positive trend toward the improvement of residential and commercial property values.
An award program was established to recognize those residents who faithfully keep their property in great condition and those who have upgraded their property by correcting previous problems.  Two properties from each Ward are selected as the winners each year.
A post card acknowledgement system was started to recognize homeowners who have displayed hard work and dedication in the maintenance and upkeep of their property.  The list is also used the next year in helping to select the new Award Winners from each Ward.
A new program, Continuous Excellence Award, was initiated in 2016.  This award is given to one resident from each ward who is a past award winner and has maintained their property continually for three years or longer.  Overall maintenance and curb appeal are two of the standards in considering a property for the award.
