About the Award
The Paul Peterson Bright Spot Award, sponsored by the East Peoria Beautification Commission, is named for Paul Peterson, who maintained the triangle garden at the intersection of Highview Road, Illini Drive and Simon Drive for 31 years until his death in January 2016.
Eligible for the award are homes and businesses who have eye-appealing gardens and/or landscaping in their front yards, making it a "bright spot" of the area. The property size does not matter. If a property looks appealing, residents are encouraged to nominate it for the award.
Bright spot recipients will receive a yard sign that can be on display for one month.
The Bright Spot award will be presented through October.
