Beautiful Battle Creek AwardsEach month Neighborhood Planning Councils nominate homes in their area for outstanding improvement or maintenance of the exterior and lawn. Pride in ownership doesn't require a lot of money, but it pays back in higher home equity and beautiful neighborhoods. Beautiful Battle Creek awards are presented by the Mayor at the beginning of Commission meetings. They are a small way that the City recognizes the efforts these neighbors have put into their homes. As prior Mayor Mark Behnke stated, "Beautiful Battle Creek Award recipients help make our community better, one home at a time." Click below to see recent winners.
