2002 - Nonprofit Organization Awards - Beautification & Landscaping - Main Street Enid

Less than two years ago, downtown Enid had 64 unsightly, neglected planter beds full of weeds. Fortunately, Enid also had the Main Street Design committee who took it upon themselves to design a masterplan, raise more than $10,000 for materials and maintenance, and recruit volunteers to make it come to life.

The photos tell it all. Main Street Enid has turned an area of neglect into an area of community pride. These bermed beds not only lend year-round beauty to downtown Enid, they have been carefully designed to control weeds and be drought-resistant.

A 24-year business owner in downtown Enid noted that the city’s improved image has helped to recruit new business and our judges hailed what they called “an incredible difference.” For turning a problem into a winning opportunity, MAIN STREET ENID IS BEAUTIFULLY GOOD NEWS FOR OKLAHOMA!
