Beautiful Home Award

Beautiful Home Award

The City of Coconut Creek recognizes the hard work and pride exhibited by residents who take the time to beautify their homes and contribute to the aesthetic appeal of our community. This award is intended not only to recognize these residents, but also inspire others to improve curb appeal in our City. This type of commitment contributes to improving the overall quality of life in Coconut Creek.


Neighbors Mr. Berman and Mr. Lebowitz won our Quarter 3 Beautiful Home Award for 2021! Their collaboration and use of lush material and color represents the vibrancy of Coconut Creek. 


The Shattuck Residence won our first Beautiful Home Award of 2021! With outstanding use of plant material and architectural features in the front yard, this residence represents the Coconut Creek community beautifully.
