Pride of Marysville Neighborhood Improvement Awards

About the Awards
The Pride of Marysville Neighborhood Improvement Awards recognize neighbors and businesses who take pride in their property in ways that enhance the appearance of the community. The awards are intended to inspire other neighbors to improve their homes and landscapes. Business owners are recognized for the "curb appeal" of their business facade and location.

A well-kept home, neighborhood and business says that residents take pride in their community. With pride comes value, beauty and a great image for our city.

Nomination process
Award winners are drawn from a pool of nominees selected by the community through an nomination process. A committee consisting of a City Council member, business community representative, Parks and Recreation representative and two citizens selected at large is responsible for selecting the winners across categories. The Mayor names his winning selection from the same pool for those candidates eligible.

There are four award categories:
  • Best Residential Property - Pride of the Neighborhood
  • BestBlock/Neighborhood
  • Best Business
  • Mayor's Choice - James Comeford Award focused on improvements in Downtown/Waterfront district
