The “Perkasie Pride Award” was established by the Mayor and Borough Council to recognize up to three properties within the Borough (one in each ward) that have made a significant contribution to beautifying the town. The improvements, restoration and-or beautification recognized by the award do not necessarily have to occur within the calendar year that the award is given.
Please contact the Mayor, any Council member or the Borough Office at 215-257-5065 to nominate a building or property for consideration. Please include a brief paragraph describing the improvements. Awards will be made at a September 2019 Council meeting. We ask that nominees include any historical information about the buildings so that information can be preserved for the record.
Borough Council will select 3 properties to receive plaques. Once nominated, a property would remain in nomination for subsequent years.
The Mayor and Council will award a wall plaque suitable for outdoor display. This plaque is approximately 7 inches in diameter and contains the words “PERKASIE PRIDE AWARD”, the date the award is given and is embossed with the Perkasie Hickory Nut Tree. The plaque also shows the year the building was constructed.
