Nominate your Hills neighbor for a beautification award

Continuing the 31-year tradition, the City of Farmington Hills Beautification Commission will once again recognize various property owners who make a special effort to create and maintain beautiful landscapes.

Awards are presented annually to businesses, offices, and subdivision or condominium entrances with attractive and well-maintained landscapes. Judges from the Beautification Commission will visit nominated sites to look for well-planned design, landscape variety, imaginative use of color, originality, and property maintenance.
