Commendable Property Awards
The Forestry Division provides staff support for the Public Beautification Committee and sponsors the annual awards for the Commendable Property program. Commendable Property Awards are presented annually to West Allis businesses and homeowners who devote extra effort to their property’s beautification and maintenance. Such efforts boost the City’s curb appeal and promote a sense of civic pride.

The recipients of the Commendable Property Awards are selected by the West Allis Beautification Committee in July and honored at a ceremony held in September. In addition to the award, a sign is posted at each property and the City’s Cable Communications Office creates video highlighting each property. This video may be viewed on City 25, our cable television station, throughout the year and on the City’s website.
