Some breathtaking landscaping can be seen throughout the city of Huntsville, and the Huntsville Beautification Board is ready to hand out this year’s Beautification Awards to nominees through the extended nomination deadline of Tuesday, April 15.
Here’s how and when to enter nominees for the 2022 Beautification Awards
The deadline to submit the 2022 entry form and $25 fee for each property nominated has been extended to Tuesday, April 15, according to a recent statement from the Huntsville Beautification Board. Judging will take place after Memorial Day.
Here are a few details regarding the nomination process:
Who is eligible?
City of Huntsville-licensed commercial, business or government properties within the city limits. To qualify, the business must be at least 1 year old. Properties that currently have an award must reapply each year.
What are the judging criteria?
Everything from the curb and/or street address will be judged on first impressions, originality, distinction, design, quality of plants (trees, shrubs, flowers, ground cover, grass), maintenance, hardscape design and litter control.
How do I submit a property for consideration?
To get started, download and fill out the 2022 entry form completely. Professional landscapers must complete an entry form for each property submitted; lists of properties will not be accepted. A copy of a 2022 business license is also required. Only one copy of the license per landscaper is needed.
Mail the completed entry form and $25 fee to Huntsville Beautification Board, P.O. Box 738, Huntsville, AL 35804. Make checks payable to the Huntsville Beautification Board.
Award presentations are back after a 2-year hiatus
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, 2022 will be the first year since 2019 that awards will be given by the Huntsville Beautification Board, as the Board did not judge properties in 2020 and 2021. Properties that received a Beautification Award in 2019 were reinspected in 2021 to ensure standards were maintained.
“The Beautification Board sincerely appreciates the efforts of business and property owners, managers and landscapers in helping keep the City of Huntsville beautiful during the past two years.”Joy Parker, chair, Huntsville Beautification Board
