July 2012 Beautification Awards Announced

July 2012 Beautification Awards Announced

(C. Proxmire, The Ferndale One~Fifteen News, Aug. 2, 2012)

Every month through the summer, The Ferndale Beautification Commission presents awards to residents and businesses that make improvements to their properties.  The awards encourage creativity and pride in the community.

Peggy Snow presented the July 2012 awards at the Ferndale City Council meeting of July 23, 2012.

The Commercial Award was given to R&S Resale at 3335 Hilton.  The practical and affordable resale shop specializes in furniture and mattresses, and has expanded its size in the strip of office/retail buildings. The building has been painted and planters have been added out front.  Additionally, the owner of R&S takes care to mow the entire strip to keep it looking nice for everyone.


Butch Yuhas is the Vice President of the Ferndale Garden Club, and his interest in horticulture shows in the home he shares with John Floros at 311 W. Breckenridge.  With freshly landscaped borders around the yards and a staircase dotted with planters, it is one of many beautiful homes in the W. Breckenridge neighborhood.


Another well-known garden expert is Carolyn Clark of 370 E. Woodland.  Adorned with statues, a decorative mailbox and a bright floral flag, this corner lot has a lot for the eyes to feast on.


Award Winners are based on nominations from neighborsmodern tax.  To have a house or business considered, pick up a form at the Library, City Hall or the Kulick Center or call the Department of Public Works at 248-546-2519.  You can also visit the Forms and Permits section of the City of Ferndale website at
