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 award is given annually, but 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. Once nominated a propery remains eligible for the award in subsequent years.
Anyone can nominate a property in the Borough by contacting the Mayor, any Borough Council member, or the Borough Office. Nominations are accepted in May and June each year, and the award is given at at Borough Council meeting in September.
The Perkasie Pride plaque is approximately 7″ 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. The plaque is designed to be displayed outdoors on the property.
