The Community Appearance Awards Program is presented each year to encourage aesthetic awareness and to acknowledge individuals and organizations who are working to enhance, improve, and beautify the Fort Lauderdale community.
The Community Appearance Awards recognize homeowners, architects, landscapers, developers, contractors, and homeowners associations for their efforts to elevate the City’s visual image and economic vitality. Since the program’s inception in 1978, thousands of commercial buildings, office towers, municipal facilities, residences, special projects, and landscape improvements have been nominated for awards.
Award applications are judged on the following evaluation criteria:
- Aesthetic value to the community
- Sensitivity to the environment and neighborhood
- Creativity – unique ideas or materials
- Design and site utilization
Sponsorship of the program comes from the community in the form of corporate and private donations, as well as from the City of Fort Lauderdale.
