The city of Southfield recognized the beautification efforts of over 140 residents as well as numerous neighborhoods, condominiums, apartments, schools and businesses at the annual Community Pride Awards Ceremony on August 26.

The program is sponsored annually by Southfield’s Neighborhood and Information Center (a division of Community Relations) and the Southfield Parks and Garden Club. The program’s goal is to give recognition to those that have gone the extra mile in their respective beautification efforts. All winners were mailed personal congratulatory letters from the Mayor and an official awards ceremony took place on August 26, 2021 in the Southfield Pavilion where award certificates of recognition and lawn signs were presented to acknowledge their sustained efforts in keeping Southfield beautiful. Each year, residents are encouraged to nominate individual homeowners, neighborhoods, condominiums, apartments, businesses and even themselves.
