Stratford is seeking nominations for its annual Beautification Awards Program

Forms are due by July 15 and are available in several places

STRATFORD - The town’s Beautification Committee is seeking nominations for its thirteenth annual Beautification Awards Program.

Those who would like to nominate properties they want to see considered should submit forms by July 15. Nomination forms are available on the Town’s website ( or in many public buildings such as the library and Town Hall, according to a statement

Judging will be conducted in early August, and an awards reception is planned for September, the statement said. The committee would like to recognize property owners who are helping promote the beautification of the town. The emphasis this year will be on curb appeal and the impact a beautified property has on its neighborhood, the statement said

The Beautification Committee also reports that Project Green Sweep was very successful this year, the statement said. The committee extended its appreciation to everyone who helped. Project Green Sweep is a town-wide community clean up effort that covers significant town parks and other highly visible gateway areas. Over 200 people assisted with the effort this year, which was held May 7, the statement said. As a result of the work of the volunteers, approximately 24 sites were cleaned up, including the beaches, Stratford Center, the streets around the airport, the Bond’s Dock area, Boothe Park, and Wooster Park, the statement said.

The Beautification Committee again teamed up with the boating community, which sponsored a multi-town clean up of the Housatonic River (Stratford, Shelton, and Milford) on the same day. That connection paid off: Public Works reports that Project Green Sweep and the River Clean Up jointly collected 15 tons of trash, the statement said.

The Beautification Committee has asked that individuals and groups contact the Town Planner if they are planning a cleanup or have completed one during the course of the year. For more information or if you have difficulty obtaining a nomination form for the Beautification Awards Program, call Town Planner Dave Killeen at 203-385-4017 or email him at
