The Community Beautification Committee will review nominations and select winners with a majority vote. Winners will be notified and invited to attend a Mandan City Commission meeting for recognition.

The Community Beautification Committee will select winners at least three times a year. Recognition is tentatively planned for March, July and November City Commission meetings. Nominations are accepted year-round.
