During the year and at the annual fundraiser, the PLA recognizes community members, residents and businesses for outstanding service and beautification efforts.
PLA members award the Garden Award to residents who are making our community more beautiful with vivid landscaping. The awardees are featured in the PLA newsletter, and the year’s awardees receive special recognition at our yearly fundraiser.
Our Beautification Awards are given out during out annual fundraiser and honor local businesses who have made an extra effort to improve their storefront through signage, landscaping, architectural elements, or other attractive features.
