Rockford to be recognized

The Rockford Planning Commission is seeking nominations for the annual Property of Distinction Awards. These awards are intended to recognize exterior building restorations, renovations and/or landscaping enhancements which make a significant contribution toward improving the appearance of the City of Rockford.

Nominations will be taken throughout the year, and may be mailed to the Rockford Planning Commission, PO Box 561, Rockford, MI 49341, with a brief description of the changes completed that make the building’s appearance worthy of the award. For this first year of the Property Improvement Awards, nominations can be made for improvements made within the last 10 years. Residential, commercial, public/nonprofit and industrial facilities will all be considered. Property owners should acknowledge their willingness to participate. Awards may be given in all categories or only

in one or two, dependent upon the nominations received. A “before” and “after” photograph is helpful, but not required.

The review panel will consist of a member from the Rockford City Council, the Downtown Development Authority, the Planning Commission, one City staff member and one City resident at large that

will be appointed by the review panel.

Award winners are presented with a weather-proof plaque for mounting on the improved building at a City Council meeting.
