DEARBORN — The Dearborn City Beautiful Commission recently named the 2022 Residential Standard of Excellence honorees. The city is recognizing homes in 17 districts citywide for their beautification efforts.
The Residential Standard of Excellence is an annual program that provides residents in each of the city’s designated 17 districts with the opportunity to be formally recognized for attractive landscapes and appealing curbside views.
The city said in a press release this week that every year the volunteer commissioners visit neighborhoods all across Dearborn and judge nominated homes in each district. Commissioners look closely at each home’s front and side yards that are most visible to the public.
Several Arab American residents are recognized for their landscaping efforts this year. A full list of honorees appears at the end of this article.
Deb Seder is the chairperson of the City Beautiful Commission and Debbie Clark is the chairperson for the Residential Standard of Excellence Awards. Both expressed gratitude for the work of the volunteer commissioners and they also congratulated the homeowners who were selected for their beautification efforts in 2022.
The top honorees received a banner to place on their lawn for the month of August and an additional 35 homes received a window decal announcing their status as City Beautiful Commission awardees.
