If township residents notice an outstanding property, we hope they'll share that <br />with us," said Mike Wanamaker, Public Works director. <br />Monthly winners have decorative lawn markers placed on their properties and are <br />considered for a Beautification Award which includes recognition at a township trustee <br />meeting and a matted certificate with a photograph of their property. "We recognize attractive <br />properties not only because they're beautiful, but because they inspire others to maintain and <br />improve their property," said Wanamaker. "The ripple effect results in attractive <br />neighborhoods and higher property values." <br />Residents on Washington Township's VIP Committee judge properties according to <br />curb appeal, maintenance, and the design of green space which includes plants, color, texture <br />and space. Properties can be nominated at or by sending an <br />email to The township also offers Facebook posts where <br />nominations can be made, or residents can tweet a nomination using #WTBeautification. <br />
