The Landscape Improvements Award recognizes local home owner
associations/neighborhood groups that have enhanced their neighborhood
environment through the planting of trees and other landscaping. The
Edmond Urban Forestry Commission will award recognition signage and
additional trees to one group each year for their outstanding efforts.
Who is eligible to win this award?
Neighborhood groups that are located within Edmond City Limits may
apply with a project that was completed within the last year. Individual
residents are not eligible for this award.
What kinds of projects are eligible?
Landscape projects that enhance the neighborhood environment are
eligible, with greatest emphasis on tree plantings. Trees installed
through the Foster-A-Tree program do not qualify. Projects must be
located within Edmond City Limits, in neighborhood-managed areas.
How does a neighborhood group apply?
Neighborhood groups with an eligible project should fill out the Landscape Improvements Award online form. Basic information about the group and project, as well as photos of the finished project are required. The deadline for applications in 2016 is July 31st.
How does the selection process work?
The Edmond Urban Forestry Commission will review applications received by July 31st at their August meeting to select the winner. They will evaluate projects on design, implementation, aftercare, and the resulting impact made by the improvements.
What is the winning group's prize?
The winning group will receive additional trees for their neighborhood and a Landscape Improvements Award sign to place near their winning project.
