With the new Curb Appeal awards, the South Milwaukee Beautification Committee is looking to award South Milwaukee businesses, homeowners and civic organizations who devote extra effort to their property’s beautification, through landscaping and other street-facing efforts.
Judging criteria include utilization of color, appropriateness of architecture of the structure, originality, lawn upkeep, and decorative exterior structures. Properties also will be judged on the overall exterior appearance of their buildings.
Judging will be occur in early August, so get your nominations in!
Multiple entries are welcome.

Note: We decided to not hand out Patriotic Display awards, due to lack of entries. The Beautification Committee will discuss potential modifications to the program, or not continuing it, at its meeting on Monday night.
We handed our Garden Tour “Best of Tour” award earlier this week.
