CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. —

Some Charlottetown property owners have been honoured for their beautification efforts around the town. 

At a ceremony recently, at Charlottetown City Hall, several residents, businesses and organizations were recognized for doing their part in keeping Charlottetown looking clean, healthy and welcoming for all.

The City of Charlottetown, in lieu of the Make Our Hometown Beautiful program, decided to hold a small event this year. In partnership with Downtown Charlottetown Inc. (DCI) the mayor and council hosted small event to recognize participants of the DCI Adopt-a-Corner program.  

Make Our Hometown Beautiful is a beautification initiative of the City of Charlottetown held in tandem with the national/international program, Communities in Bloom. 

There wasn’t an official call for nominations for the 2019 season, as the Make Our Hometown Beautiful program is undergoing a full review with plans of a revamp and launch in 2020.
