Now that the winter has finally left us, it’s the perfect time to look around your neighborhood to nominate attractive front and back yards in the township for the 2019 Beautification Awards! If you know of some attractively landscaped yards (and particularly BACK yards that are hard for committee members to see from the roadside) in your neighborhood – or even your own yard – please nominate them!
Each year, Upper Merion Township honors residents who make the effort to beautify their landscapes. In addition, we recognize businesses, institutions, and organizations whose properties are a positive amenity for the township, as well as one tree that stands out from the rest.
Have a property in mind? Start by filling out this nomination form. Be sure to include the following information:
- The addresses
- The owners’ names
- The owners’ phone numbers (if you have them)
- Pictures or videos clips (if you have them, that would help tremendously!)
Nominations can be submitted to Barley Van Clief at firstname.lastname@example.org by May 10, 2019.
Distinguished Tree Award
Do you know of a particularly beautiful, healthy, historic, or unusual tree? Nominate it for the Distinguished Tree Award! These magnificent, long-time residents of the township deserve some recognition, too! The benefits they provide to ALL of us are tree-mendous!
Your volunteer Shade Tree and Beautification Commission members will be roaming the streets between now and May 10 to find this year’s winners. They will review all nominations and submit the semi-finalists to the township for the final vote. Winners will be recognized on October 17.
