Each year, residents of the City are encouraged to “tell on their neighbor” by nominating the yards in their neighborhood that they find to be the most appealing or the most improved. Nominations can be made throughout the month of July and until close of business on August 9th. Nomination can be emailed with address and photo, in person at Rock Island City Hall, 1528 3rd Avenue, or by calling 732-2900.
The Commission views photos of all the nominations to determine if the properties meet the qualifications. Then the qualifying properties are sent a certificate of appreciation signed by the Mayor and Beautification Commission Chair. Below are pictured some of the 2019 award winners.
