Submissions invited for 2006 Clean and Beautiful City Appreciation Awards
The City of Toronto invites residents, community groups and businesses to celebrate their successes in cleaning up and creating beauty in the city by applying for a Clean and Beautiful City Appreciation Award. Now in its second year, the awards recognize outstanding contributions to the Clean and Beautiful City initiative. The application deadline is noon on Friday, August 25.

“Keeping our city clean and beautiful is up to all of us,” said Deputy Mayor and Chair of the Roundtable on a Beautiful City, Sandra Bussin. “The Appreciation Awards are our way of saying thank you to Toronto residents for the important role they play in making Toronto a more attractive and inviting city that we all can enjoy.”

To be eligible, projects must have been in progress during the period of September 1, 2005 to September 1, 2006 and be located within the City of Toronto, on either public or private property. Whether it is cleaning up litter and graffiti, painting a mural, or planting a garden, no project is too big or too small to be considered. Before and after photos of the project must be submitted with the application.

Applicants must be residents or business owners within the City of Toronto. Entries will be accepted from individuals, large and small businesses, community groups, including neighbourhood volunteers and faith groups, schools, Business Improvement Areas, service clubs and not-for-profit organizations.

City Councillors will review the submissions within their ward and select four winning projects. A reception and the presentation of awards will be held at Toronto City Hall on September 26.

Appreciation Award applications are available at public libraries, community centres and on the City’s website. For more information or to apply online, visit
