Item Discussion



Mayor Riley and the Beautification Committee will present the 2017 Beautification Excellence Award signs to homeowners and businesses that were judged to be the best of Leon Valley for beautification.




Social - Beautification awards promote outreach in the neighborhoods and businesses by challenging people to make their homes and businesses more attractive. This creates a positive influence in our neighborhoods and businesses.


Economic - A property that is maintained increases both the property value and the community value.


Environmental - By beautifying our community with plants, we are helping to reduce pollution by reducing the amount of carbon dioxide in the air. Plants also help remove chemicals and bacteria from the ground and are a food source for wildlife.
