The Beautification Awards Luncheon, held at the Best Western Plus on Thursday, 21 June 2018 was masterfully organized and executed by the V.P. of the Madison Beautification and Tree Board, Amber Braman with the assistance from Board Member Liz Smith, a certified Arborist. The mission of the Madison Beautification and Tree Board is to enhance the quality of life in Madison through beautification and environmentally friendly practices.
For 2018, 18 properties scored a maximum score of 100, 84 properties scored between 95 to 99 by a team of Master Gardener Judges, and 50 Properties maintained their Beautification Award eligibility for a minimum of five years.
This year, 2 exceptional properties took home the Best in Show Award; The Catbird Seat and Ted’s BBQ. Both properties show exemplary pride and effort to make their properties stand out to the judges and the Board; therefore, the MBTB decided to present both with the award.
The awards were presented to the recipients by City Councilman Gerald Clark, District 6, and City Administrator Marc Jacobsen. The event was MC’ed by MBTB President Mike Keenan.
The MBTB would like to thank all those that participate in “Keeping Madison Beautiful” and look forward to even more participation at next year’s event. Additionally, MBTB would like to invite everyone to come out to the Madison Chamber of Commerce Business Expo and Kid’s Day on 28 July 2018 to meet the Board and see what you can do to “Keep Madison Beautiful”.
