Town of OC Beauty Spot Award Nominees Sought
Ocean City, Maryland – (May 11, 2023): Ocean City’s Beautification Committee is currently seeking nominations for the 2023 Beauty Spot Awards. The available categories for Beauty Spot nominations are as follows: residential, condominium, retail, hotel, motel, commercial, restaurant and the Boardwalk. Only nominated properties will be judged and the Beautification Committee is asking for the public’s help in finding those special properties that are evidence of civic pride and community beauty.
“A property can be nominated by anyone, including the resident or owner of a residence or business, a relative, neighbor, friend, customer or just a passerby,” commented Beautification Committee Chairperson, Donna Greenwood. “Once all nominations are in, the Beautification Committee will travel around town to view all the nominated properties and will judge them based on plants, flowers, trees, shrubbery, grasses, design, layout, etc. that complement the property.”
According to Greenwood, even those properties with little or no ground in which to plant can imaginatively use containers, planters, window boxes, hanging baskets or something else to improve the “curb-side” appeal of their property and can be nominated. Also, those who make an effort to beautify unattractive areas such as dumpsters, electric boxes, etc., can be recognized. The winners, with their awards, will be presented in the fall at a Mayor and City Council meeting.
To nominate a property, please call Donna Greenwood at 410-289-7060, mail nominations to OCBC, Department of Recreation and Parks, 200 – 125th Street, Ocean City, MD 21842 or email to [email protected]. The deadline for submission is Sunday, June 11, 2023. OCBC asks that the submission include the property owner’s name, street address, and a contact phone number for the property owner. Additionally, please include your name and phone number so that the location and information can be verified, and a photo of the property.
