2004 - Outstanding Achievement - Beautification & Landscaping - Ardmore Beautification Council

Outstanding Achievement in Beautification & Landscaping (Annual budget greater than $100,000)

Following the suggestion of a local benefactor, the Ardmore Beautification Council asked for citizen input last year on what project could be done to beautify the interior of the city. After several voiced complaints about the unattractive front entrance to the Post Office, the Council set about turning this eyesore into a sight for sore eyes.

Work was coordinated with the postmistress and a sweetheart deal was struck with Planet Concrete and Big Red Containers for many donated services and supplies. The Council also has made several recommendations that will help the post office maintain attractive grounds.

The judges praised the idea of actually asking the community what project the group should do and noted the difference this very visible project has made. For sending a blueprint special delivery to the rest of the state about giving a tired old building a fresh and inviting approach, once again the Ardmore Beautification Council is good news for Oklahoma.
