The Forestry Division provides staff support for the Public Beautification Committee and sponsors the annual awards for the Beautification Program. Beautification Awards are presented annually to West Allis businesses and homeowners who devote extra effort to their property’s beautification and maintenance. Such efforts boost the City’s curb appeal and promote a sense of civic pride. Categories include Commendable Property, Best Porch, and Patriotic Display.
The recipients of the Beautification Awards are selected by the West Allis Beautification Committee in July and honored at a ceremony held in September. In addition to the award, a sign is posted at each property and the City’s Cable Communications Office creates a video highlighting each property. This video may be viewed on City 25, our cable television station, throughout the year and on the City’s website.
To nominate a property for a Beautification Award, send the property address to the West Allis Beautification Committee, c/o DPW Forestry Division, 6300 W McGeoch Avenue, West Allis, WI 53219 or use the online nomination form. The deadline for nominations is June 15 of each year for Commendable Properties (now closed for 2020), July 15 for Best Porch, and three days prior to Memorial Day, Flag Day, and Independence Day for Patriotic Display. Nominations are closed for 2020.
The Beautification Program shows West Allis citizens and visitors that the City recognizes the importance and value of keeping our City beautiful. Take pride in the appearance of your property and make West Allis an even better place to live!
