Beauty on the Block – Nominations Now Open


Rockford Park DistrictNominations are open for Beauty on Every Block! 

Is there a lot that you walk by or drive by every day and you wish that someone would do something about it? Are you willing to help make that neglected space beautiful again?

Rockford Community Partners is working together to create a vibrant community and has completed more than 20 beautification projects within the past three years with help from grants and volunteers. We want to do more with your help.

Nominations are now available for the Beauty on Every Block! Program. Nominate a spot within the Rockford area. Rockford Community Partners will review the nominations and then seek grants for approved projects which can include beautification, landscaping and planting, and then will assist during the process.

Requirements:

  • The site must be publically owned.
  • Persons/organizations making nominations must be able to:
    • Identify at least 15 volunteers to do the clean-up and planting and
    • Identify at least 6 volunteers that will be responsible for weekly maintenance.
    • Unfortunately, we are not able to work on structures through this program.

Nominations are due by March 14th, 2016
